I was just there last summer! Hiked all the way around the tower with a fever while I waited for my antibiotics prescribed the day before we left for vaca to kick on. I would have loved to ride my bike all around SD. Maybe someday...
Good looking family. I wish I had a little kid, boy or girl, doesn't matter. Here are some more pics from SD, then.
Wounded Knee cemetery. I don't know if it's irreverent but it's such an iconic place I couldn't resist. The road up the hill was too rutted so I went up the side of the hill through the grass, having actually forgotten I had all that stuff on the back. From up there I noticed a road that was less rutted and started down that, but crashed anyway. A station wagon full of Native Americans came zooming up the road, jumped out and dusted me off, and sped back down the hill. So fast I almost couldn't say a word to them. One very strong young woman basically lifted the bike herself, with about 100 lbs of stuff on it.
I wanted to look at a snake in the road and when I got back to the bike I thought it looked like a good pic. Note the missing mirror that came off in the crash above. Machine shop in Rapid City put it back on with an insert.
Lesser-known view of Mt. Rushmore.
Camping on public land maybe 30 mi. from Rushmore. Could see houses below. Father came up with little kid to see what was going on. Kid was about 6, dressed in full armor, zooming around on a tiny motocross bike.
Might be Wyoming, not sure. Interesting pyramid things in the distance. Several miles away
