Driving on a cloudy day in May did not take away from the thrill and beauty of the Needles Highway in South Dakota. Located in Custer State Park, in the Black Hills of South Dakota, this is an amazing bit of road. I had my mouth open in awe for the fourteen miles of rock formations, crazy curves and narrow tunnels.
I was happy that we had to travel slowly along the winding road, the highway has spectacular scenery. I wanted to stop every chance I could to drink in the beauty. It is like no other place. Peter Norbeck, the South Dakota Governor in the early 20’s wanted this highway to be thrilling. He succeeded.
