I am the office manager for our local county police academy by day and a travel enthusiast at night! I spend many hours on TripAdvisor and totally love its concept of travelers helping each other. I really do not consider myself an "expert" for the Black Hills region of South Dakota, but I do enjoy sharing my experiences about the area with others in hopes they will realize all this section of our country has to offer.
Assisting others plan trips is one of my favorite pasttimes, and I try to advise people based on their wants/needs, rather than my own.
My favorite places to travel always include a mountainous setting. I have a keen interest in our national park system, and my goal is to visit as many national parks and monuments in the United States as I can. I always travel with my husband and daughter, and we have done our best to instill a love of our park system in her.
