Ice Cave

The Ice Cave is in the western Black Hills, not really close to anything. There was a big fire in the area several years ago, so instead of driving through pine forests on the way out, the drive is largely along barren hillsides littered with black charcoal stumps.

The cave isn't very deep, but is impressive none-the-less. When we visited, there wasn't any ice inside, and nearby we flushed a small flock of grouse.
We saw 2 bats clinging to the ceiling. After looking around a little bit, we ate a snack at the entrance, then walked back to our car.

This last picture is from the back of the cave looking toward the entrance.

You can drive most of the way to the cave with a 2 wheel drive, low clearance vehicle.
