The Thriving Metropolis of Scenic, South Dakota

This image was taken in the town of Scenic, South Dakota (population 87). This little town is a bit off the beaten path between Rapid City, SD and the Badlands. This saloon sign, covered in cattle skull and barbed wire, sits atop the Long Horn Saloon that opened in 1906.

Here is a shot of the old saloon. Notice the sign states "Indians Allowed." Very progressive for 1906 I would imagine.

This old rusty wheel was chained to the outside of the general store which started as a trading post over 100 years ago.
