I'm sure it doesn't look like that today.

We have been back a month and I have been working like a madman so I have not got around to doing a proper report.
South Dakota is actually at the end of the trip that we took through Nebraska and Wyoming along the Oregon Trail and ending up in West Yellowstone.
Sadly Cindy Lou's bikes fuel pump crapped out and no one within a days ride in Idaho/Montana/Wyoming had a replacement, more on that later.

More South Dakota

Deadwood


Custer State Park , Needles Hy way


We met the last living guy that worked on Mt Rushmore Don "Nick" Clifford a cool old dude.


Comanche Park campgrounds


Badlands looking a lot prettier then the last time I saw it in 85 , due to all the rain

That's beautiful Jack. We're in Gardiner at the moment. Hopefully we can get out to west Yellowstone, but it might not happen.

That's awesome Lou, the North end of Yellowstone is our favorite, there is a dirt road you can catch called Blacktail Plateau dr , It's one way and you get on it just East of the Albright visitor center off of the Grand loop road, we saw 2 Mama black bears with cubs and a very big Grizzly on that one stretch, if you go don't get out and wander around especially with out bear spray.
The stretch between Tower Junction and Canyon Village is amazing and you could do all of these sections in a day, the rest of the park is very crowded and involves a lot of walking, we spent 5 days in and around YS and could have stayed 5 more easily, lots to see , had a great time.
Bear tooth pass is on the way home if you can swing it it is a super cool high altitude pass that will get you to Cody.

Have fun!!!!

Thanks Jack! Yes, we love it. We essentially live on the northern road for about 2 weeks every march. We get in around 11pm, and head back out at 4 am. We also do a week in summer if we can.
