Greetings Eve, We wandered around for 10 minutes looking at rocks and motorcycles before we saw this feature. This are of formations is really stunning with eye candy every where you turn. I finally saw the sign and looked up to see how the rock had eroded to give the name. The tunnel is really small and people with big RV's looked worried as the pulled in to the darkness of the bore.

Greetings Bruce, I imagine we could find a camel, probably not willing, that would fit.

Greetings Kovi, Thanks for visiting the Needles Eye and commenting. It is a very impressive pull out with a tiny tunnel and huge rock formations. The Black Hills of South Dakota are wonderful by motorcycle.
