    March is typically the snowiest month of the year though November to May can be quite chilly. Winter starts in November with cooler temps during the day but still plenty of sunshine. December sees temps in the 30s and starts to drop into the teens at night. January through April is just downright cold, daytime stays around 30-40. In May it gets up into the 60s and by June it starts to reach into the 70s. June to October you're golden!

    We camped at one of the more rustic campgrounds in the area (can't remember the name, but it was one of the National Forest campgrounds and down this nearly impassable road). We did some nice hikes in the area of Wind Cave and saw the Crazy Horse monument being built. The best thing we saw was the drive along Peter Norbeck highway...there's a lookout point at the top where you can see Rushmore in the distance. To be honest, the coolest part about the whole experience was soaking in the local, mmm, culture: lots of wide-open spaces and miner-shacks-turned-saloons there. It hasn't changed much since the Deadwood days.
