What fun we had today! First, we drove to Mount Rushmore. What a spectacular National Monument. The weather was perfect this morning. Low 70’s and clear.
Next we drove through Custer State Park. It had beautiful scenery, lovely facilities, well maintained roads and several surprises like scenic drives through unspoiled forests, narrow one lane tunnels through granite mountains and wildlife including buffalo, antelope, prairie dogs, and birds of all sizes.
Leaving the park we drove the Needles Highway, a narrow windy road through some of the most beautiful and unique terrain we have ever seen. All and all, a delightful day.
Tomorrow, back on the road for 2-1/2 more days! Stay tuned!!
