It is now 3pm and I am in a parking lot of McDonalds almost into the Bad lands of South Dakota and I will bring you right up to date!!
So we go back to Sunday night and me parked at the RV park in Lander….
See I clean up not bad eh????
Had a great sleep and the next morning very humid and overcast and I went down town!!
Happy 4th of July to my American friends!!!!
In all truth it wasn’t really a great parade but it was fun!!
I looked at the road maps and I figured with a good day of driving I could be at Mount Rushmore by about 8pm and watch the light show so that is where I was headed…
Best gas price yet!!!!!
turned to this!!!
My first time in this State!!
It was a drive of nearly 400 miles and I did arrive at Mount Rushmore by 8pm and my first photo I could not help thinking of what my Anderson boys on the Bank said when they were here a couple of years…that sure looks like DAD!!!!!
Sure enough I thought the same thing too!!!!
I found a seat at the back of the Amphitheatre and when the Ranger came on stage at 9pm there were hundreds of people seated. What a thrill for me to be here on the 4th of July surrounded by Veterans and a light show and the singing of the anthem..yes I shed a tear!!!!!
I am really quite good at finding places to stay that are safe and quiet and I found another one last night in the parking lot of the information centre of
Had yet another great sleep and decided not to pay the 12 dollars to go the Crazy Horse site I would if you were allowed to climb up
I then took the wildlife loop of the Custer Park supposed to be the biggest herd of Buffalo in the Nation….I think they all must have been partying too much last night because I saw not a one!!!!!
Did see lots of these…
Love this photo below I took it through the rear view mirror!!
So there you are up to date…I am now going into the scenic drives of the Bad lands and continuing my way east hope to post again tomorrow…blessings!!
