This vacation we had a hard time picking a place to go, as the multitude of raging forest fires out west narrowed our choices. So, we picked South Dakota, since we’d never been, and I’ve always wanted to see Mount Rushmore. We stayed in Custer, Sylvan Lake, and Deadwood for the first few days, then headed to The Badlands and stayed at Cedar Pass Lodge, which is right in the park. The Tamron G2, which I bought for the eclipse, proved useful with wildlife shots. Gallery also available on our facebook page.
