Our Only Gold Discovery was the Sunset


General George Custer first visited the Black Hills in 1874 to search for a location for an Army fort as well as to determine whether or not there was gold in "them there hills"! The team of men led by General Custer did find small amounts of gold, and the well known Black Hills Gold Rush began later that year. Although we didn't find any gold on the ground, we did enjoy a golden sunset over Custer's Gulch, the campground where we stayed for 6 nights.

What do you do on a rainy day when you are traveling?

While camping for 6 nights at Custer's Gulch, we visited the many tourist sites and nearby Custer State Park. Of course, our days were planned assuming that we would have perfect weather every day. Towards the end of our stay in Custer, one of our days was dreary and rainy. Knowing that our time was limited, we trudged on in the rain. Our reward was a nice sunset at the end of the day!

How do you adjust your plans when you encounter bad weather during your vacation?
