Leaving Mount Rushmore, we headed off east.
You cannot miss the constant barrage of invitations to Wall Drug while on the way to South Dakota’s Badlands. Despite a relatively high resistance to such invites, we succumbed and ended up taking a peek.
Interesting it was. The weather remained scorching outside … and soon the landscape withered. Here are the Badlands of South Dakota. It’s not a place to be stranded!
Now here’s a place an old cowboy could hide … who would search for you in this heat?
Fortunately were in a TC, not on horseback. Just open the freezer for a few ice cubes and look out the window. Ahhhh … an office with a view, again.
In the old West, this might have been a great place to hide – but cooking hot in the summer, and freezing cold in the winter. Very bad lands indeed. Keep on movin’ though, and the landscape changes.
Stark yet stunning … crushing heat yet colorful beauty. Don’t miss this!
We’re heading back to Gillette for a free night at Wally’s … a cool evening breeze … and fresh bagels at “The Main.” Goodnight.
