After the bike ride, we popped into this saloon in Hill City for a bite to eat. I had the best sweet potato fries ever. Plus a glass of wine.
video from someone of the drive. I wanted to see the caves in the area but we ran out of time, specifically Wind and Jewel.
There were at least 6 of them. This fella was right in my window. I locked the door. Loved it. By the way, these animals are actually bison. We like to call them American Buffalo but truth be told, buffalo are only really in Africa and South Asia. And so our adventure came to an end on a big bang. Yay!
We returned to Hill City to pick up our rentals from Rabbit Bicycle and this time, we went in the opposite direction on the Mickelson trail towards the town of Custer and Crazy Horse.

After the bike ride, we visited Bear Country USA. "A drive-through park featuring North American wildlife roaming free in their natural habitats." Loved it. Totally worth it.
"Bear Country USA, located 8 miles from Rapid City, features the world's largest collection of privately owned black bears. Take a leisurely 3 mile drive through this spectacular wildlife park nestled on 200 acres of Black Hills beauty where you'll see black bears, grizzly bears and over 20 other species of North American animals like buffalo, wolves and elk all from the comfort of your vehicle."
