Overnight, it feels we closed the door on July and officially welcomed the dog days of August. (Oh wait, we definitely did.) Amidst searing temps and a few summer storms, we still got to enjoy a month full of spectacular scenery, special events (like 4th of July celebrations and the Days of ’76), and the best that Black Hills and Badlands have to offer. Here’s a recap of the five most-loved photos from our Instagram account during the month of July:
