Packed up and drove into Rapid City this morning, found a FREE parking spot (take note Bunbury) and went for a wander along the tree lined streets! With a population of about 70,000 Rapid City is a clean, neat city and in an unusual feature has brass life like statues of 42 of the 43 US Presidents - Obama will be included once his term has finished - placed on the corners of the main city streets!

The road cut through more and more desolate land as we went. First a mix of farms and ranches, then just simple ...
