A beautiful monument just outside of Deadwood. From the top of the tower, you can see the surrounding hills and valleys for miles. If you have mobility issues, this may not be the stop for you: the tower is a ½ mile walk on a dirt path and the stairs to the observation deck are very steep (I am guessing about an 18"/step rise). Worth the stop.
