The Hills

We ended up in Lead, South Dakota, staying at the Palace Express. We both agreed it's our second favorite hotel so far, after the one in Detroit.

The columns in the photo above have these smiling bald eagles on them.

We went to a couple bars and it's a pretty happening small town scene. Lead is in the middle of the Black Hills – the next town over from Deadwood, but without all the tourist traps. It's in a ravine, with the business district primarily in the bottom, and houses on the sides. The residential neighborhoods remind me a little of Aberdeen or Kalama.

When we headed back to the Palace, the snow was really starting to fall.
