April, Bismarck is the closest airport and only 30 miles from Salem Sue.
You cannot miss her from I 94; she stands high on a hill. (We also have a
new airport which should be opened up shortly; I understand it's quite
spectacular, considering the size of our "metro" area.) If you're driving
and also planning a trip to Mt. Rushmore, you must consider Medora. This is
a restored western town in western ND and very close to where I grew up.
Medora is quite a tourist attraction. http://www.medora.org/ After Medora,
you can drive east to Belfield (where I grew up) and take US 85 south to Mt.
Rushmore. The drive from Belfield to Belle Fourche (pronounced Foosh), SD,
is pretty long and boring. Well, except for the sheriff sitting in his
patrol car in Amidon, which is town where you don't blink or you miss it.
