Wall Drug was really a big souvenir shop. The story of how it started with giving out free ice water is neat and I liked some of the stores. My favorites were the Rock Hound, the candy store and the fossil store. I found some cool rocks-calcite and amethyst and Mom and I picked out taffy at the candy store. The best flavor was cupcake. Mom likes licorice flavor. Dad thought we would be through Wall Drug in 20 minutes and he was getting antsy to leave, so we found the free ice water and left after that. Oh, I almost forgot to explain PPP. When we first got there, we entered in a place called the backyard. It's an alley decorated with billboard-sized scenic photos and there were people taking photos of the photos, which seemed silly, especially when they could just drive there and see the real thing.
It didn't take long to drive to the Badlands National Park. What a cool place! We drove to our cabin and it took awhile to get there becuz we kept stopping and looking at the views. At one point we had to stop for some wildlife in the road. We finally reached the Cedar Pass Lodge
around 7pm and found cabin #119. We lucked out! It was brand new with rustic furniture, a fridge, coffee maker and a flat screen TV. Mom said that this was her idea of roughing it. We had to hurry for dinner because the only place to eat was the lodge and it closed at 8:30pm. Dad and I had Indian tacos which are like othe normal taco but made with Indian fry bread, which is like eating a taco on a big donut. Sounds wierd but tastes good. After dinner we we walked to hear a ranger give an evening talk about the Sioux (aka Lakota) Indians but we didn't stay for the whole thing. It was a dark walk home without flashlights.
