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".

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.

BuffaloAt first we were having trouble finding buffalo, and then we ended up finding a huge herd-- many of them crossing or standing by the road!

Wind CaveOne other attraction we went through was Wind Cave. Unfortunately due to the camera we brought into the cave acting up, we weren't able to get any pictures inside the cave. But we did get this one at the natural entrance. The ranger is demonstrating how the cave got its name -- wind sometimes blows out of the cave, and sometimes blows into the cave.
