If you're rambling around the Black Hills anytime soon, you might want to check out the new Android mobile phone travel app released by the Black Hills, Badlands & Lakes Association. The association released an iPhone version of the app in May.

The application includes guides detailing all six national parks and monuments, six state parks and recreation areas, Black Hills communities, events, camping, trails and things to see and do. There's also  contact information for more than 450 businesses in the Black Hills. You can also find a snowmobile trail map and other information for winter sports.

“Visitors will have not just a directory or guide at hand,” said Association President Nort Johnson. “Our app is also able to give the visitor turn- by-turn directions to any attraction, hotel or restaurant listed."

You can download the app at the Black Hills, Badlands & Lakes website, or get it from the Android market page.

The Black Hills, Badlands & Lakes Association travel app is the first mobile application dedicated to the Black Hills and western South Dakota. Check it out.

About the Author

Dan is an on-again, off-again Black Hills resident since 1978. The Aberdeen native hit the road after high school, building houses in Boulder, working oil rigs on Colorado's Western Slope, delivering cars in California. In Wyoming and Idaho, he worked as a newspaper journalist. But the Black Hills kept luring him back. For 18 years, he wrote for the Rapid City Journal. The job gave him a chance to see the Hills from atop Mount Rushmore and the bottom of the Homestake Mine. Whenever possible, Dan grabs his dog Kody and heads to the Hills. These days, he's perfecting the art of low-impact backpacking: hike two hours to a scenic spot, break out the wine, cook up the pasta, watch the sunset and fall asleep under the stars.
