Be enchanted by never-ending blue skies and radiant starlight

while on our 39-day Black Hills to the Rockies Caravan. This picturesque area is home to Mount Rushmore, Yellowstone, and the Rocky Mountains. You will experience Mother Nature at her finest on this spectacular display of bounty and plenty. From the Black Hills National Forest to a Mount Rushmore Evening Light Show, South Dakota is awash in incredible beauty. We enjoy two days in the legendary Wild West town of Deadwood, location of Boot Hill and final resting place for Wild Bill Hickok and Calamity Jane before stopping at Devils Tower, America’s first National Monument, where Close Encounters of the Third Kind was filmed.

We travel to Buffalo and Cody, WY; areas of the country that have been a significant part of American History. Buffalo was named by Time Magazine as one of the most charming communities in the Rocky Mountains. The majestic beauty and natural wonder of Yellowstone National Park and the Tetons will astound you as we enjoy seven unforgettable days grasping the sheer beauty of what these two great phenomena’s give us. Heading into Utah and Colorado, we are surrounded by some of the world’s most colorful scenery every minute and mile of your trip. Each mile capitalizes on the beauty and splendor of the region, giving you many Kodak moments. You are in for a special treat, as you ride the Durango & Silverton Railroad, Canyonlands by Night Boat Cruise and Royal Gorge Aerial Tram.
