After a great might’s sleep at the Deadwood Mountain Grand Lodge, a great value, by the way( and under a year old). We headed to Sturgis to see the world famous motorcycle rally place and shop at the Harley store. But of course we planned to be there when the rally wasn’t going on – smart aren’t we?
This is the hottest day of our trip so far! Sally finally gave in to the illness that has been trying to take her down since Monday so after spending some time at McDonald’s to cool off in Rapid City her and Dean decided it would be better to fly her home. So, as God always does, He had us positioned just right to get to the airport in about 10 minutes and Dean was able to use miles for the flight. “Feel better soon, Sally!”
Then we headed southeast on I-90 to Wall, SD. We visited Wall Drug where we ate lunch and bought a few souvenirs and of course, visited another Harley store. We loaded up on water and rode to The South Dakota Badlands. Wow! It was hot!!! But it was truly one the most awesome sights to see. We all talked about how tough those settlers must have been.
Well, it didn’t get any cooler after leaving the Badlands. After getting as many miles under our tires as possible, we stopped in Valentine, NE at the Comfort Inn.
Tomorrow promises to be another very hot day but that’s just part of the journey.
