The Badlands is an awesome geologic event in South Dakota. If you ever watched “Breaking Bad”, the series about a chemistry teacher turning bad to make meth “BLUE”, this might look familiar. LOL.
Our campground was at the edge of the park and we took the pic of the broken down trailer from our site, with the park in the background.
Well, it's taken me some time to get back to blogging, but I wanted to get these photos posted to finish our trip journaling. We had a great time with Dave and Deb Krobath before going to the FMCA Rally in Gillette, WY.
We explored some western history, (Calamity Jane and Wild Bill Hickok), the Bullock Hotel and the site of Wild Bill’s demise, Saloon #10. Fun times.
The drive from Cheyenne, capital of Wyoming to Spearfish was a long day. As we got closer to South Dakota and the Black Hills, the landscape became more green and just beautiful. We met up with our friends, Debbie and Dave.
We spent one day driving around the area, exploring Devil’s Tower, making a loop. Aladdin was supposedly a must see. Ha! The population was 15 and the only thing there was an old grocery store. Decide for yourself...
Cheyenne is a town of about 65,000 and a lot warmer than Estes Park. But it is not as hot as Texas, at least not right now. We are just missing the town's event of the year, Cheyenne Frontier Days. With Tim's dad in the railroad, the first stop was the historic train depot. Then it was off to lunch for a brew and patty melt. Tim's favorite things to eat...
When we departed the RV Park at Mary's Lake, we were detoured by a trail ride associated with a rodeo in Estes Park. It took forever, but after finally getting back on course, we proceeded on our way to Cheyenne. The scenery was so beautiful, Tim took some shots through the windshield while I was driving. The Big Thompson Creek ran along side the road as it wound through the mountains.
