MT. RUSHMORE AND SOUTHWESTERN SOUTH DAKOTA

October 24-28, 2024

Leaders: David Bradford/Andrea Ezerins 

Haven’t seen Mt. Rushmore yet or want to revisit this national treasure nestled in the Black Hills of South Dakota? Then this is the relaxed nature tour for you. The plan is to fly into Rapid City, SD and spend four nights in Keystone, SD. While in Keystone, we plan to visit Mt. Rushmore National Memorial, Crazy Horse Memorial, Custer State Park, Badlands NP, and Mammoth Excavation Site. We might also tour a cave and visit a museum. Since this is a relaxed nature tour, we will not need to be up too early and hope to have some down time to relax a bit. After all, shouldn’t one be able to relax a little while on holiday? However, in 2023 we did not have a lot of down time, but we sure covered a lot of ground, saw a lot of fantastic sights, and big fun in the wide open expanses of South Dakota. 

 

The 2022 tour visited all the above major attractions plus we saw buffalo, pronghorn, coyote, prairie dog, mammoth bones, a ghost town, the tourist town of Keystone, and the vast expanse of the great outdoors in southwestern South Dakota. Of course, we spent time looking for birds and had a good time seeing some of the birds of South Dakota. Please visit my website for a list of species seen and the written summary.     www.birdtoursbydavidbradford.com

 

Cost of the tour per person going double occupancy is $1900. For single occupancy add $550. A deposit of $500 holds your spot. We are staying right in Keystone where hotels are very expensive, but close to the action.

 

Deposit checks can be mailed to David Bradford 18046 Green Hazel Dr. Houston, TX. 77084. Call 281 744 6486 to leave a message or text and I will return your call.
