1972 Rapid City - Black Hills Flood


Those of us who lived through that horrible night will never forget—and we hope that others will be prompted to remember the date of June 9, 1972. The morning of June 9th dawned with a humid and foggy haze covering much of the eastern Black Hills and plains to the east. That hot, humid Friday in early June eventually turned into a night that Black Hills residents would never forget; a night in which over 238 persons would not survive.

Badlands National Park


Over the centuries, the geologic formation known as the Badlands has been described as the closest thing to a lunar landscape that can be found on Earth, a scenic marvel.

Bear Butte


Bear Butte is a laccolith located on the northeastern slope the Black Hills, an area of uplifted Precambrian formation. It is made of magma which never reached the surface to generate an eruption. The magma intruded to a shallow level and then stopped, cooled, and solidified. Erosion then wore the overlying layers of rock away.

Black Hills and Badlands Geology


The unique and varied landscapes of the Black Hills and Badlands region are a geology student’s dream.

Examples of these formations are evident in may areas of the Hills: the walls of Spearfish Canyon; Harney Peak, Mount Rushmore and Crazy Horse Memorials; Devils Tower, the Needles; Bear Butte; and the Badlands to name only a few of the most obvious examples.

Black Hills Gold Jewelry - The Tradition Continues

Black Hills Roundup


Belle Fourche has been “doing it up right” for over eight decades, and this year will be no exception. The Black Hills Roundup will take place along the Belle Fourche River as it has since its inception in 1918.

Black Hills Wild Horse Sanctuary


The greater Black Hills area is wonderfully abundant in wildlife, and even more remarkable in the amount of public access allowed for viewing creatures in their native habitat. This is nowhere truer than at a significant preserve dedicated to the famed Western wild horse – The Black Hills Wild Horse Sanctuary – located southwest of Hot Springs, South Dakota.
