This was the first section of the holiday. It was followed by a flight to Los Angeles and a stay in disney Land. We had looked at flying into Rapid City, but that was much more expensive and so we chose to fly to Denver and drive up.

Day 1 Flew to Denver
Day 2 Drove to Chadron Nebraska. A long 350 mile drive.
Day 3 Drove to Wall via Badlands National Park a full but enjoyable day driving 230 miles
Day 4 Drove to Deadwood a relatively short drive of 95 miles.
Day 5 Stayed in Deadwood.
Day 6 Drove to Spearfish via Devils Tower Wyoming a drive of 150 miles
Day 7 Stayed in Spearfish
Day 8 Drove to Rapid City a drive of just over 50 miles. We chose to move around the area until day 15. None of these days was much driving just a chance for us to move on and see some more of the wonderful blackhills region. You could just as easily pick one place to stay and see everything we saw in easy day trips.

Day 11 Drove to Custer
