Wyoming And South Dakota Vacation Travel Video Guide
Travel video about destination Wyoming & South Dakota in USA.
Cheyenne is Wyoming’s most populated city. When the railroad was constructed in 1860 this “hell-like settlement at end of the railroad” became an important trading centre. For what was to become the federal government, the State Capitol was built and with its golden dome and Corinthian columns it is similar to its larger counterpart in Washington.In the middle of the eighteenth century French scouts were the first to penetrate this region that was then inhabited by the Arapaho and Shoshone Indians. The cowboys and farmers of the Old West needed to spend their hard earned money and Cheyenne profited accordingly and a profusion of hotels, saloons and warehouses suddenly appeared. The Badlands was given its name by the Native Indians due to the inhospitable terrain as they felt threatened by it. Thirty seven million years of wind, rain and snow transformed this highland into a natural work of art that was inaugurated as a national park in 1978. Set within the Black Hills in the state of South Dakota is one of the most famous landmarks in the United States, the Mount Rushmore National Memorial where four monumental portraits of the most famous American presidents have been carved into the granite and symbolize a kind of spectacular tribute to democracy. Twenty five kilometres south west of Mount Rushmore another stone image towers up from the landscape, the Crazy Horse Memorial. Constructed in 1947 it commemorates the famous chief of the Oglala Sioux and its dimensions are even larger than those of Mount Rushmore. As in former times, the routes of the first pioneers still bring visitors into the far west through overwhelming mountain scenery with grandiose views, Wild West towns, buffalo prairies and vast ranches. Make no mistake about it, America’s Wild West is still wild: a place of natural spectacles and nostalgic adventure!

Black Hills of South Dakota
The Black Hills are a small, isolated mountain range rising from the Great Plains of North America in western South Dakota and extending into Wyoming, United States. Black Elk Peak, which rises to 7,244 feet, is the range's highest summit. Mount Rushmore, Deadwood, Crazy Horse monument etc are located in the Black Hills.
Mount Rushmore National Monument, Black Hills, S.D.
Although Mount Rushmore stands today as a shrine of democracy, a National Monument and memorial to this country's birth, growth, and ideals, the original idea behind the carving was to promote tourism to the Black Hills area of South Dakota. Today, Mount Rushmore symbolizes the greatness of this nation through the greatness of its leaders.
Carved into the granite face of Mount Rushmore near Keystone, South Dakota and sculpted by Danish-American Gutzon Borglum and his son, Lincoln Borglum, Mount Rushmore features 60-foot sculptures of the heads of four United States presidents: George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Theodore Roosevelt and Abraham Lincoln. These presidents were selected by Borglum because of their role in preserving the Republic and expanding its territory.
The image of Thomas Jefferson was originally intended to appear in the area at Washington's right, but after the work there was begun, the rock was found to be fragile and unsuitable, so the work on the Jefferson figure was dynamited, and a new figure was sculpted to Washington's left.
From October 4, 1927 to October 31, 1941, John Gutzon Borglum and some 400 workers erected the sculpture under dangerous conditions, removing a total of 450,000 tons of rock in order to create the enormous carved heads, each of which reached a height of 60 feet. Borglum left his work on the Stone Mountain Confederate Memorial project near Atlanta after artistic disagreements with the sponsors of that project.
The initial concept called for each president to be depicted from head to waist, lack of funding forced construction to end in late October 1941.
The Washington head was formally dedicated in 1930, followed by Jefferson in 1936, Lincoln in 1937 and Roosevelt in 1939. Borglum, a member of the Ku Klux Klan died in March 1941. The final dedication was not held until 50 years later. John Gutzon Borglum supervised the completion of the heads. Carving stopped in October 1941, on the eve of our entry into World War II.
The U.S. National Park Service took control of the memorial in 1933, while it was still under construction, and has managed the memorial to the present day. It attracts nearly three million people annually.
The project cost a total of $989,992.32. The entire memorial covers 1,278.45 acres and is 5,725 feet above sea level.
Sculpted on land given to Native Americans by treaty, Mount Rushmore is one of the most inflammatory and blasphemous symbols of what was taken from them. For this reason, they have contracted the carving of an enormous Monument to Chief Crazy Horse on a mountain not far from Rushmore. That carving is incomplete.
Fun facts about The faces on Mt. Rushmore:
*Creation of the Shrine of Democracy took 14 years and cost a mere $1 million.
*Rushmore's granite faces tower 5,725 feet above sea level.
*The carvings on Mount Rushmore are scaled to men who would stand 465 feet tall.
*Each head on Mt. Rushmore is as tall as a six-story building.
*More than 800 million pounds of stone were removed from Mount Rushmore while carving the presidents.
*Each president's face is as tall as the entire Great Sphinx of Egypt, measuring 60 feet from the chin to the top of the head.
*The presidents' noses are 20 feet long, each mouth 18 feet wide and the eyes are 11 feet across.
*The workers had to climb 506 steps daily to get to the top of Mount Rushmore.

Black Hills, South Dakota - Custer State Park - Full Tour (2019)
Custer State Park is a South Dakota State Park and wildlife reserve in the Black Hills, United States. The park is South Dakota's largest and first state park, named after Lt. Colonel George Armstrong Custer. The area originally started out as sixteen sections, but was later changed into one block of land because of the challenges of the terrain. The park began to grow rapidly in the 1920s and gained new land. During the 1930s the Civilian Conservation Corps built miles of roads, laid out parks and campgrounds, and built three dams that set up a future of water recreation at the park. In 1964 an additional 22,900 acres (93 km2) were added to the park. The park covers an area of over 71,000 acres (287 km2) of hilly terrain and is home to many wild animals.
The park is home to a famous herd of 1500 free roaming bison. Elk, coyotes, mule deer, white tailed deer, mountain goats, prairie dogs, bighorn sheep, river otters, pronghorn, cougars, and feral burros also inhabit the park. The park is famous for its scenery, its scenic drives (Needles Highway and the wildlife loop), with views of the bison herd and prairie dog towns. This park is easily accessible by road from Rapid City. Other nearby attractions are Wind Cave National Park, Mount Rushmore, Jewel Cave National Monument, Crazy Horse Memorial, and Badlands National Park.
Various movies have been filmed in Custer State Park, including The Last Hunt (1956), How the West Was Won (1962) and A Man Called Horse (1970).
South Dakota Highway 87 (SD 87) is a 37.894-mile-long (60.984 km) state highway in the southwestern part of the U.S. state of South Dakota. It travels through the Black Hills region. The highway's southern terminus is at an intersection with U.S. Route 385 (US 385), about 6 miles (9.7 km) southeast of Pringle, within the southwestern part of Wind Cave National Park. Its northern terminus is at an intersection with US 16/US 385 about 3 miles (4.8 km) south-southwest of Hill City, within the east-central part of the Black Hills National Forest.
The highway travels through Wind Cave National Park and Custer State Park. The northern 14 miles (23 km) of the highway is also known as the Needles Highway. The Needles Highway, along with the concurrency with US 16A, are also part of the Peter Norbeck Scenic Byway. Portions of the highway are also a section of Custer State Park's Wildlife Loop.
After splitting from US 16A, the route is known as the Needles Highway. This segment is 14 miles (23 km) long. Finished in 1922, the highway is named after the high granite needles it winds among. Access to the Needles Highway requires a Custer State Park entrance license, making that portion of SD 87 a toll road. Along this stretch lies the Black Hills Playhouse. The highway passes through two tunnels blasted through sheer granite walls—Iron Creek Tunnel and Needles Eye Tunnel. Owing to the narrow roadway, sharp turns, and low tunnels, the road has very little traffic. The vehicles that do travel this road are almost exclusively sightseers.
Just after Needles Eye Tunnel, Highway 87 serves as the northern terminus of SD 89. After this junction, SD 87 has one more tunnel, Hood Tunnel. It then provides access to the Sylvan Lake Resort. The route finally ends at US 16/385 south of Hill City.

EXPLORING KEYSTONE, SOUTH DAKOTA
Keystone is a town in the Black Hills region of Pennington County, South Dakota, United States. The population was 337 at the 2010 census. It had its origins in 1883 as a mining town, and has since transformed itself into a resort town, serving the needs of the millions of visitors to the Mount Rushmore National Memorial, which is located just beyond city limits. Keystone was heavily damaged in the 1972 Black Hills flood.
The town took its name from a local mine, which most likely was named after the keystone Masonic symbol.

Top 7 Places to Visit in South Dakota
Top 7 Places to Visit in South Dakota
There are so many places to visit in South Dakota that it's hard to narrow it down to just a few! This list comprises our favorites! We could have made it a top 10 but some places we didn't take any video or photos...so yeah, top 7 it is!
Number 7 - The Corn Palace
The Corn Palace is located in the town of Mitchell in the far South East of the state. The corn Palace or The Worlds Only Corn Palace as it deems itself is an arena in downtown Mitchell with outlandish onion shaped domes akin to St. Basil's cathedral in Russia. What makes the corn palace a roadside attraction is well...its corn. The building is decorated each year with thousands of ears, and husks of the stuff, all carefully arranged and nailed into place to create amazing patterns and pictures.
Number 6 - Wall Drug
If you Drive along the interstate 90 in South Dakota prepared to be onslaught with billboards and signs of every shape and size advertising Wall Drug Store. The story goes that wall drug owned by Ted Hustead in the 1930s was struggling to keep business until his wife Dorothy had the bright idea of advertising free ice water to travelers heading west to the Black Hills. Business began to boom and wall drug grew into the most curious collection of stores and shops you've ever seen. It really is more like a mall than anything else. Wall drug has got some great food, donuts, and delicious fudge in it's candy shop. Not to mention lots of photo ops and places for the kids to romp out back...oh and did we mention they still have free ice water!
Number 5 - Crazy Horse Memorial
The Crazy Horse Memorial is a monument under construction in the Black Hills representing the Native American leader Crazy Horse. The memorial is absolutely massive with all of Mt Rushmore being able to fit within a small portion of the top of it. The memorial and its work are overseen by the Crazy Horse Memorial Foundation, a non-profit seeking to educate people, and preserve the heritage and history of the native american peoples. The monument has been under construction since 1948 and is far from being completed, but the museums and film about the memorial make this a worthwhile stop.
Number 4 - Mt Rushmore National Memorial. Perhaps the most iconic attraction of South Dakota and one of the most recognized national memorials in the United States, Mt. Rushmore is an impressive feat of engineering. The monument features the 60 foot likenesses of 4 iconic United States Presidents: Abraham Lincoln, Theodore Roosevelt, Thomas Jefferson, and George Washington. It was created between 1927 and 1941. There's no fee to visit the memorial, but you do have to pay to park. The bright side is that your parking fee covers you for a whole year. At night there is a special patriotic program put on by the rangers and they light up the mountain.
Number 3 - Reptile Gardens
Reptile Gardens is a tourist attraction Wild Animal Park housing an amazing collection of reptiles, birds, bugs, and amphibians. The Reptile gardens has an incredible collection of venomous snakes...we saw snakes here we had never seen in any other zoo. They also house Maniac and enormous 16 foot Salt water crocodile from Australia. Make sure to stop in to all the various shows included with your admission, especially the Alligator Show. Also make sure to go pet the giant tortoises.
Number 2 - Badlands National Park. The Badlands are a spectacular natural wonder of the American Plains. Badlands National park protects over 240 thousand acres of buttes, pinnacles, and mixed grass prairie. It was made a national park in the year 1978 and is such a unique place. The Badlands has several places to hike, picnic and learn about the flora, fauna, and ancient history of the area. The land was originally hunting grounds of many Native American tribes. It was originally the Lakota People that gave the area the origins of it's name. Definitely check out the Notch Trail if you plan a trip, and make sure to watch our Adventure 36 video where we hike it!
Number 1 - Custer State Park
Number one on our list is Custer State Park. Custer is massive state park of over 71,000 acres in the Black Hills of the state. It's a refuge for a large variety of wildlife including Pronghorn Antelope, Turkeys, and even a herd of 1500 American Bison. The park has ample opportunities for recreation, including hiking, camping, swimming, or just driving the scenic Needles highway. There are multiple visitors centers in the park and an excellent Junior Naturalist program. There is just so much to do here, especially if you enjoy the outdoors. This is one of our favorite state parks that we have ever visited, be sure to check out our video about it!
