Theres a lot of history, vistas of purple mountain majesty,
and just a touch of cynicism buried here. Not quite miner's gold,
but darn close. So take off yer boots, pull up a chair, and come
with us to visit some of the quieter spots in the Black Hills.
Youll find a few untraveled trails, a look back at South
Dakota's mining lore, routes to a few hidden oases of truth. If
you ever spent a sunset hour, perched on the terrace of the Old
Palmer Gulch Lodge, you'll hear the distant bells of horses run
out to pasture in these pages.
