We’re on our way. Let the adventures begin! I don’t know how often, or if, I’ll have time to post for the next couple of weeks, but this is our first stop. We’re at Fort Welikit outside of Custer, SD. We have a BIG spot that we love. In fact we have already made reservations to stop here again for a few nights on our way back home. The only issue is there has been no water all day in the campground because of a burst pipe. It’s supposed to be fixed in the next half hour!
Here are some photos of the Needles Hwy we drove this morning. Of course, pictures don’t begin to do justice to this beautiful area. I think it’s my favorite place on earth. Until we moved to Spokane, we vacationed here with our kids every year. First we tent camped and then had a pop-up camper. We took that camper all over the west!
You can barely see one of the driving tunnel entrances in the center of the photo below. We had just driven through it!
Another tunnel as we drove through. We had to put the mirrors in on the truck or we wouldn’t have fit. No RV’s allowed here. 🤪
You can see forever!!!
Twisty, hairpin roads that are so much fun to drive. It’s where I learned mountain driving over 40 years ago.
So gorgeous and perfect weather today with low, low humidity and 75F. Can you ask for anything better?
When I see stunning vistas like these I always think of this verse. It was my Mom’s favorite.
It was 104F in Rapid City as we drove through yesterday. The truck and camper did great except for a few broken plates and bowls because the cabinet came open.🤷♀️
Tomorrow we leave for Helena where we’ll see our two oldest grandkids and our son. I’m SO excited.
Be good and stay well, we’re trying to as well.
Blessings and love,
