Ralley Strangest Hole:
Let's face it, at the Sturgis Ralley there are any
number of tourist traps in the Black Hills. Places
where the main point of operation is to fool you for
long enough to extract money from the black leather
wallet sticking out the back pocket of your Levi's.
That's why I'm going to recommend one that's not -
the Mammoth Site at Hot Springs. I roamed the Black
Hills for years before accidentally being dragged
into it by someone else. Otherwise I probably never
would have gone in. I mean, who really wants to see
these massive, hairy dead things.
it's good. That's why we like it for Sturgis Ralley.

These mammoths were wondering about minding their
own business a few eons ago. They came on this big,
deep hole. They are proof that is it a lot easier
getting into big trouble than it is extracting oneself.
The mammoth beasts went down into the hole and then
couldn't get out.
After the bellowing ceased, they croaked. Then they
were eventually covered with muck. Today the hole
is full of dead mammoths which not only make a Sturgis
Ralley tourist attraction, but a rather interesting
Motorcycle Ralley - You'll see the bones and replicas
of the real live mammoths. Hitting a deer on the Harley
is one thing. Hitting one of these critters would
be a different matter entirely. Anyway, it's worth
a visit. And the staff is very knowledgeable.
It's bizarre, of course. But then, that's what the
Sturgis Ralley is all about.
As a side note, almost every single one of the dead
mammoths are young males. No females got themselves
in this terminal pit of a hole, unable to get out.
Sturgis Ralley philosophizing is left to you...
