The fabulous women of Sturgis are one of the most talked about attractions of the annual Sturgis Bike Rally. The Sturgis Motorcycle Rally draws hundreds of thousands annually in Western South Dakota, and most of those visitors make it into downtown Sturgis for at least a day or two during their visit.
Some of the women who visit the area take the opportunity to wear a bit less than perhaps they normally would and show off their assets. The men who visit Sturgis, and many of the women as well, definitely look forward to the spectacle. There are many interesting outfits, body paint, and uniforms on display at the Rally. The diversity of what is on display makes for an interesting adventure for all who attend.

The Bureau of Land Management, in collaboration with Black Hills area nonprofit Black Hills Trails have put together a tentative schedule for the remaining work to be done before commissioning the new 7th Cavalry Trail System on the Fort Meade Recreation Area. The remaining work will likely entail thousands of volunteer hours throughout 2016, but the good news is signage will be placed on all trails in the new trail network in 2016. This will be a major boon for visitors to the area, as currently to make use of these trails a person must do some of their own way-finding or find a guide that is knowledgeable of the area.
The new Trail System reconstruction work includes rebuilding several major sections of the iconic Trail #89, or Centennial Trail, which is the best known and probably the most used trail in the Black Hills region.
