              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2005

              About the owner: I am a child psychotherapist in the public schools in Chicago in the winter, and a Black Hills resident in the summer.

              Why the Owner Chose Nemo:
              I grew up in the Black Hills and left there, restless to see the world, when I graduated high school--couldn't wait to leave. Now that a few decades have passed, I cannot wait to retire and get back for good.

              The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
              I have a very busy time of it when I can get out there. It takes a lot of energy to walk the woods and peaks with my dog, look out back to see if the bachelor elk is coming by, pick up fossils, watch the sunset from Custer Peak, lie on my back in an innertube, and meditate on the front lawn. When friends visit, we go to Deadwood, Mt. Rushmore, Crazy Horse, and ride the 1880 train. The Warrior's Work gallery in Hill City is amazing, and Prairie Edge store and museum in Rapid in remarkable. Custer State Park is un-missable, and the rock shops and antique-ing are wonderful. Come on by!
