After I was done visiting the Custer Battlefield National Monument I decided to head over to the Black Hills of South Dakota and go to the 75th annual Sturgis Bike Week.
Because this was the 75th anniversary it was estimated this would be the largest one ever but I decided to try to battle the crowds long enough to see it. I had left Cody, Wyo., early, gone to Billings for shopping and then the battlefield, so it had been a long, hot day and I wanted to find a National Forest for us to camp in.
I left Cody, Wyo., drove to Billings, Mont., and shopped there and then toured Custer’s Battlefield. That made it a long day so I spent the night i Custer National Forest in the free Red Shale Campground. The next day I drove onto Spearfish on the way to Sturgis.
Fortunately the Custer National Forest is midway between Little Bighorn Battlefield National Monument and the Black Hills. I was very impressed by how pretty this drive was along Montana Route 212 which goes right through the Northern Cheyenne Indian Reservation. It was a very nice forest with several creeks and rivers set in rolling hills.
