Nestled in the Black Hills

While visiting Custer State Park, we decided to get out of the heat for a few hours and take a cave tour. The choices in the area are Jewel Cave National Monument and Wind Cave National Park. We chose Wind Cave since it is located right next to Custer.

I would say Wind Cave is a unique cave in that you don't see the normal formation (stalagtites & stalagmites). This cave is more famous for it's boxwork, thin strips of minerals that form intricate patterns.

There are multiple hiking trails that are available, as well as wildlife viewing opportunities. We didn't get much of the park taken in since we spent most of the day in Custer, but we did take some time to take one of the tours offered.
