The Black Hills are a beautiful mountain range straddling western South Dakota and eastern Wyoming. Scenic roads wind through the ponderosa-pine covered slopes, and there are canyons, lakes, caves, wild west towns and some of the nation's most famous monuments to explore.
Strongly linked to Native American culture, the Black Hills became a black page in American history in the 1870's. After the discovery of gold, the US government went back on its promise of eternal exemption of white settlement in the area and relocated the Lakota to unworthy flatlands.
