Fall in the Black Hills is one of the best times of year!  Not only is the scenery even more beautiful, but the lines are shorter and it's easier to get around.  Whether you're a local or a visitor to Custer, here is a bucket list challenge to ensure that you're making the most out of this great time of year.
