Rapid City Attractions

Rapid City is a bit of a "tourist trap" (not that the rest of the state is much different). However, some of the attractions there are really "must-see's".

1880cross.jpg
The railroad travels through some very pretty Black Hills country, sometimes right through the hill. In the twenty or so miles, there are 19 road crossings--all on the same road! So we got to hear the steam whistle quite often. This picture shows one of the hillsides, near a Bible camp. The camp has erected a cross at the top of the hill (which you can see better if you view the enlarged version).

2003's Design in 2002We happened to be in Mitchell as they were working on 2003's designs (even though we were there in 2002). The front of the building was mostly done, the side was still incomplete.
