Road Trip

Wild Bill and I decided to take a road trip. We couldn't decide between Tennessee and South Dakota. Finally, the very morning we left, we decided to head East to Tennessee.

Early May and it was already hot and humid by the time we reached El Dorado Arkansas! I knew we had made a mistake and quickly convinced Wild Bill to make a left turn and head North to South Dakota. OK, so we had gone quite a bit out of the way, but South Dakota was worth the trip. Here's coming into town near Deadwood SD. Sorry for the bug splatters on the windshield...

I loved this little mountain stream. It was worth the 2 days drive just to see this creek running down the mountain.
We found a lake outside of town while exploring the Black Hills of South Dakota. We really regretted not having a camper or trailer to camp in at this point. The lake was so perfect, I was sure I could catch a fish if I just had a pole!

I'm not much of a boat person, but I sure wanted to launch one into this lake and try my luck at fishing. Here's a little town called Hill City. By this time, we were checking real estate flyer's to find a perfect cabin to put down some roots.

The last thing we did this day was a trip by the Crazy Horse monument, which is in very slow progress. Hope you get a chance to check out this lovely area soon!

  1. Years ago we drove across the US and saw Mt. Rushmore and the Crazy Horse monument. It truly has been slow work, but the trip is just lovely! I hope you're continuing to enjoy your trip!!
