Take a visit to the Black Hills of South Dakota and you will witness beauty like none other. Majestic pine trees, thick and dark, the namesake for the Black Hills. Six National Parks can be found in the area with miles of trails for hiking, biking, and rock climbing. Wildlife abounds including Buffalo, Deer, Big Horn Sheep, Mountain Goats, and our beloved Burros. Historic places, national monuments, family attractions, and gold mines. Truly an American Journey.
Yes, I did say gold mines. Only a few years ago, the largest gold mine in North America could be found in Lead, South Dakota. Today mining operations can still be found in the area and you can certainly try your luck panning for this sought-after metal in search for riches!
It was afterall this quest for riches, that prompted the legendary Henri LeBeau, many years ago to seek his fortune once he heard the cry “There’s gold in them thar’ hills!”. But as legend has it, he did not find his fortune however he did create the Black Hills Gold jewelry motif that is so popular today.
While Black Hills Gold Jewelry by Coleman can be found from Coast to Coast, it is especially prevalent in the Black Hills area. As you can see in the photos, you can find it at Mt. Rushmore, Deadwood, Crazy Horse, Custer State Park, and many other places your travels will take you to when you visit the Black Hills.
Be a part of the Great American Road Trip this year, and take a visit to the beautiful Black Hills of South Dakota!
