The Black Hills have been enjoying typical spring weather. Cool evenings with sometimes foggy mornings which burn off into pleasant days. We're getting spring moisture, but most days aren't a complete washout.

Every year about this time Bald Eagles come to the Black Hills in search of food. They stay as long as there is plenty of water, but as spring turns into summer and the seasonal creeks dry up, many of them move on. They are easy to spot, but are shy and if you try to get close, they will fly to somewhere more secluded.

The weather has been in the 50s and 60s the past week and has helped to melt a lot of snow in the lower elevations. Seasonal creeks are running again, but not too high yet. The snow in the upper elevations is melting slow enough to keep the streams within their banks.
The downhill ski areas are reporting good snow, and they should be able to stay open for at least another week, Terry Peak is hoping for two more weeks. If you are planning a trip to the Black Hills please check our Events page to find out what is happening during your stay.
