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".

Black Hills Petrified ForestOn our last day, after driving through Spearfish Canyon, we made a last-minute decision to visit the Petrified Forest in Piedmont. It was a worthwhile stop, as you don't see this amount of petrified wood everyday!

Needles HighwayOne of our favorite areas of Custer State Park is the Needles Highway. There are so many scenic views and overlooks. Here, Cathy poses on a rock outcropping with Bailey.
