We had a farewell dinner tonight where Zoe received two awards for completing her Junior Ranger workbook and her Badlands Environment workbook. Only 3 people received that latter award and she was the only girl to finish the work. We were very proud!

The cruise into Hot Springs was nice rolling Hills. Dinner in the Vault Hotel, a short walk back as it was just next door.
