Last night was extremely windy. And I thought it would be quiet!!  Even though my tent was set up well and all the pegs and ropes were tight, the tent flapped and flapped for about two hours.  The people in the site next to me had several things blow off of the picnic table in the middle of the night. That was noisy!

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.
