A stop at the Aladdin General Store

and along the beautiful Spearfish Canyon Scenic Byway.
We saw the  film site for Dances With Wolves,
 spotted a bear and other wildlife along this beautiful drive.
We drove through Deadwood with its 40 casinos and on to
Sturgis where the town is in full preparation for the
The guys did some shopping for Sturgis T-shirts and gear.

Beautiful countryside! How special that you were able to do so much driving so you could see the countryside.

I'd love to see your guys modeling their new Sturgess gear!

Can't believe how much territory you covered on this latest trip. Wow! (And as much as I like quiet, a town with a population of 15 sounds right up my alley, ha!)
