Where I stayed
Great Falls KOA
The weather today was good, but the 660 miles seemed SOOOOOO long. At one place in Wyoming, I had to wait 30 minutes due to road construction. I traveled through portions of South Dakota, Wyoming, and Montana.
I woke up very early (on purpose), packed up all the stuff, and was taking sunrise pictures in the Badlands by 5:30 am.
Today's animal count included: many prairie dogs (in Badlands), 2 rabbits, 2 llamas in a corral, and at least 25 pronghorn. No rattlesnakes.
Here are some sunrise pics at Badlands, plus one of my campsite at the KOA in Great Falls.
