Got up this morning to the roar of tractor trailers as our campsite was located adjacent to a state highway. But the campground had some good shower facilities so we all took the opportunity to shower up as we got kind of stinky from our hiking in the Badlands. On the road at 9 am and took the fastest route out of the Black Hills. We would have liked to have taken the scenic roads through the Black Hills, like the Iron Mountain Road with dramatic views of ...
