Default Western part more hilly?

I know that Rapid City is technically outside of the Black Hills, but I've heard that the west side of it is more hilly. How true is that, and does anyone have any pictures of the west side? Thanks.

The southern and western sides of the city have more hills. There are also two large mountains just west of downtown. The further west and south you go, typically the higher and wavy the land is. North and east of town is mostly flat and is lower in elevation.

What neighborhoods would that encompass, and are there any pictures?

Rapid City does have the better climate... a little more brown in the summer perhaps with lower humidity, much warmer winters, and much hillier. East side hasn't been that bad the last couple years though... above average rain and warm springs. Not the norm though.
