We decided while in Belle Fourche to take a drive along Spearfish Canyon. We began on the east side, driving through the town of Deadwood. Once known for its notoriety of gold, gambling and gunpowder, it is now visited primarily for its 86 casinos offering possibly less riches than the gold mines of yesteryear.
However, it is still a colorful town, and maintains its western personality, at least outside in the streets.
Perhaps the two best known names in Mt. Moriah Cemetery are Wild Bill Hickok, killed in a poker game in Deadwood
It’s a beautiful drive, winding between the canyon walls
