I got to bag another National Park on the list today at the Badlands NP. I am about ½ through my list.
This geologic marvel was created by a sea that covered the great plains millions of years ago. We drove around the scenic road and stopped at the visitor’s center to read about the history of the place.
We then headed back West past Rapid City and on to Spearfish. There is a canyon out there that we decided to drive through and do a short hike along a stream.
Next stop was Deadwood. There was a classic car show going on there and we walked the streets. Not much there besides gambling and more gambling.
On the way back we stopped for lunch in Sturgis. It was the week after bike week so it was empty except for the tumbleweeds.
One final night in Rapid City and it was back to Detroit.
It was a quick trip with lots of stuff packed in. We were both impressed with the work done on the reservation. It would be nice to continue building the bond with the people at St Cloud school.
Until Next Time
