Our lives now include living at one of the nicest senior communities in the USA. Rossmoor in Walnut Creek, CA. We will still travel in the RV but not full time.

WE are in a great RV Park “Happy Holiday” just outside Rapid City and just before Mt. Rushmore on highway 16.

Did no one ever tell me how pretty the area is?  I love it, but the drive was a long one and Shadow and I did not fare well.  I literally continued rocking and rolling once we arrived and it was not helped by the 100 degree heat.  From low cold temps in Yellowstone right into heat.

We crossed the Big Horn Park and Mountains that we drove up into last year in the summer, but we were crossing the southern pass.  We both shared the driving but when we got to Sturgis I made Russ drive thru town just so I could get a quick look.  I think every tourist on a motorcycle goes to see it even if their travel time is not the big event in August.

Big Horn was one hell of a climb but again so gorgeous.  Then you cross land that looks like the waves of the ocean, but each time you come out of a trough you are higher.  Anyway here’s some pictures and am looking forward to tomorrow at Mt. Rushmore and Custer State Park.

We crossed these mountains in Wyoming

We drove in this gorge and high above it.

    Interesting itinerary. We drove though the Custer Park years ago on our way home from Quebec, Canada. What an eye opener for a couple who watched movies in the 40’s, that must have been filmed in Arizona!! Have fun!

    • Thanks Cyn for the comment. It’s so fun to know you are out there following us. Today will be 100 degrees so I plan to go to Wind Cave to get out of the heat!
