I went out for 3 days and came home on Monday, Aug 3. I tried to avoid driving into the interior of the Hills (like Hill City, Needle Hwy., etc) due to heavy traffic. Stayed mainly on western edge around Newcastle WY and Devils Tower. Traffic still got heavy during the afternoon hours. Got up early to beat the traffic into Sturgis the Saturday before opening. Traffic was heavy from campers, trailers and bikes coming in. Only came across one accident. Looked like someone could not make a curve, EMT was attending to the rider.
