Headed out of the Badlands towards Wall South
Dakota, to visit the (in)famous Wall Drug Store. It can best be
described as "the South of The Border of the West Coast", for those
of you who have had the pleasure of stopping at the North/South Carolina
From there I was off to the Black Hills to do some
hiking, see Mt. Rushmore and a few other things. Just outside of Rapid
City there was some sort of air force museum, so I stopped to check it out...
I always wanted a Huey growing up
They were running tours of the nearby Air Force
base, so I took one, we got to see some B1 bombers, and actually went down
into a missile silo, which was kind of cool...
Don't forget to "duck and cover" when
you see the flash...
After the museum, I was considering stopping off
at Mt. Rushmore, but realizing that I was feeling a little cantankerous, I
figured that it would be best to avoid crowds, so I took the scenic drive
through Custer state park and headed down towards Wind Cave NP.
The drive was really cool, got to drive through a
bunch of crazy tunnels carved right into the mountain
Spent the night at the campground at the national
park (no interesting people there this time) and planned on exploring Wind
Cave the next day.
