When we were in SD last month, one of the many things that we did was travel Highway 87, aptly named the Needles Highway. We drove it twice actually, but darkness descended so quickly the first time that we could not take photos. So, we traveled it again the next day. I hope you enjoy the photos.
We caught a glimpse of some of the interesting rock formations from a distance.
Finally, we passed through the last tunnel. There are two such tunnels on this highway, one is 8'4" wide and the other is 9' wide.
We pulled off the highway and gazed all around us. It was incredible. I have never seen rocks like this.
The above photo is the "Needles Eye" that the Highway is named after. The photo below is of the base of the Needle.
What a thrill to see rock formations like this.
On our way out, we passed this beautiful lake, Sylvan Lake.
The beauty in that area is absolutely breath-taking!
I definitely will go back again and see these lovely sights. I hope you enjoyed seeing them.
Have a wonderful day,
