Yup, today we left NORTH Dakota and moved all the way down to SOUTH Dakota.
Another day we drove part of the Killdeer Mountain And Four Bears Scenic Byway. Along the way we stopped at:
This was a relatively small NWR but it does have a pleasant picnic area.
We walked one of their trails. We noticed we were being watched.
We took a detour off the Scenic Byway and followed the Gap Road Loop which is a gravel road through scenic Killdeer Mountain Wildlife Management Area and at times through open range. These babies were in no hurry to get out of our way.
We left ND today a little after 8. It took us just a bit over 4 hours to drive the 221 miles to where we are now camped.
From the time we left Dickinson, ND until we arrived here in Black Hawk which is 6 miles west of Rapid City, we passed no area that was populated enough that I would consider it to be a town. That's the kind of drive I like.
Even our home for the week is in a rural setting. Again, something I like.
We are at Three Flags RV Park, a Passport America park that also gives 50% discounts to Escapees members. We have 50 amp, full hook up with cable and free WIFI at $20.00 a night. However, we set up our own satellite and I am using my own WIFI as it is faster. Only problem is I am on roaming so after I post this blog, I go back to their WIFI.
I think we have the best site. It is at the end of the line and overlooks rolling hills.
Tomorrow - Devils Tower about 100 miles from here. We were there 11 years ago but look forward to a return visit.
Safe Travels all!!!
