Where do I even begin? This trip to the 75th Annual Sturgis SD Motorcycle Rally was so much more than the events in Sturgis. In fact, we didn’t even get to Sturgis until our last day in South Dakota. Car or motorcycle, this part of the United States is a must see. But I do have to say, on the back of my love’s motorcycle was, by far, the BEST experience of my life. It heightened all my senses and brought us even closer (hard to believe I know!) together as a couple.
While we were on vacation we saw several interesting places. Too many to put all in one blog post so below is the summary of our trip and if you click on each destination (as I create it) it will go further in to detail of those destinations and our wanderings at each of them. I hope you enjoy it even a fraction of what we did!

Held sacred by Native American tribes, this climbable rock formation is the first national monument.
