A Day for Monuments and Larger Than Life Men

... the center of Deadwood to find a restaurant. By now it was 9:00 PM. We were tired and hungry. The motel owner recommended a restaurant above a casino...well, every single store in Deadwood has a casino. Crazy! It took awhile, but we found it. Luck was with us again. We had a fantastically delicious meal there...and I can't remember the name of the place!
The next morning was perfect for coffee and a muffin at the picnic table in the ...

... the man at the collection booth leaned out and handed me a brochure and a free ticket. He said, " I noticed you are a veteran from your truck's license plates, here is a free ticket, and thank you for your service!" I said, "Thank you, Sir" and continued in.

On our way west, we saw some buffalo grazing and passed by the town where Laura Ingalls Wilder lived (from Little House on the Prairie fame). We also saw thousands of ...

Rushmore/Crazy Horse

... gorilla playing the piano, statues of the poker game during which Wild Bill was shot, numerous trashy souvenir stores, lots of benches with statues with which people can pose for pictures, Indian tee pee, donut factory, six foot jack-a-lope, rock shops etc. There is diagonal parking all along the street (with few spots even at about 10:30 in the morning), and RV parking a block over. It is crazy!!! ...

    I didn't stay here, but enjoyed the restaurant and the lake. We went out on a paddle boat ride. The hikes around the lodge are very nice.
