I got an early start this morning, heading from Custer to Rapid City to pick up I-90 and get to The Badlands. I was pleasantly surprised to see that the dealership in Hill City was open, so I stopped in and picked up some shirts. After that I cruised out to the park.
The Badlands is amazing. I stopped every chance I could to take pictures. The formations have an otherwordly beauty which just drew me in. After the first few miles it was hard to think that I was still in the plains of South Dakota. I ended up filling up the first 2 gig card and started in on the second one.
After leaving the park I headed on down the highway to tonight’s stopping point in Siuox Falls, crossing back in to the Central time zone. I made one final stop in Mitchell to get a picture of the Corn Palace. After that I got in to Sioux Falls and got a room for the night.
I’ve got about 340 miles to do tomorrow to get to the rally site outside of Kansas City.
