We finally made it to Cheyenne shortly after 2:00 pm and found our way to the Terry Bison Ranch RV Campground which is just off Hwy 25 and a few miles from the Colorado State line. We used our Passport America discount and the price was $23.08/night with tax. This is our second visit here and we highly recommend it. It's an active ranch ...
While we were in Tucson we met a couple who live part of the summer in Hill City, SD, in the heart of the Black Hills and only a few miles from Mt. Rushmore.
