    ... in the low sixties and very windy. We both put on our Yosemite jackets. After the gravel, wind stopped and it got hot.

    Spent the rest of the time on the Badlands Loop Road which runs northwest to southeast. Stopped at most of the overlooks. All had very scenic views. Badlands reminded us of a mini Zion with its different color strata.

    After the Badlands, drove 30 miles east to west on a nearly deserted road from Interior to Scenic. At Scenic ...

    ... Siding to Rapid City There were gorgeous homes with acres of cut grass. Along this road you can visit Thunderhead Underground Falls and the Black Hills Caverns. Just before Rapid (as the locals call it), we stopped to see Canyon Lake. This lovely park was hit by heavy rains in 1972 and totally submerged in water. There were many lives lost as well as homes, businesses and even a nursing home and hospital - a true ...

The kids all grew up helping him with the project and since his death have continued with this monumental task (no pun intended).

They have created a museum that is second to none in ...

    ... which is a carving in Georgia celebrating the Confederacy. He left the project after a disagreement with some of the project backers.

    Borglum worked on Mount Rushmore for 14 years, and was still working on it when he passed away in 1941. His son, who had also been involved in the project for virtually his entire life, spent another season working on the carving after his father's death, but left the project as it as after that. The original carving ...

    ... Russia in 30 minutes.. Oh my. On our way to Rushmore, we knew we had to stop at the iconic and very kitschy Wall Drug Store outside the Badlands. It was very crowded with bikers who were staying in town for the Sturgis bile rally. Quirky doesn't begin to describe the store. It began as a simple town drug store and has expanded to encomp*********** block and have multiple interconnected stores ranging from a cafe, to ...
