This, by far, was my oldest daughter’s FAVORITE place, the Mammoth Site in Hot Springs, SD. First of all she is crazy about elephants and mammoths are pretty close, second, she loves digging up “bones” like a young paleontologist in the making. I admire this ambition since it was close to what “I” wanted to be when I was that young, an archeologist and smooth talker Indiana Jones. What am I saying, I STILL want to be that. Photos. Go.
