Custer State Park, South Dakota: Needles Highway
The drive on Needles Highway from south to north gets better and better as you go the 14 miles. Near the northern end, visitors see how the road got its name -- with needle-like rocks sticking up into the sky.
There are a couple of one-lane tunnels through the rock, which are pretty interesting to drive through. Honk first. The views from those hills are pretty terrific too.
