We made it to Whispering Winds Campground in Hill City, South Dakota near Mount Rushmore. Tomorrow we will actually go see the Presidents and Crazy Horse. We did 5 states in 3 days. It's a relief to have made it here. Despite the rain today, this segment of our journey was uneventful but long (500 miles). My goal was to see some bison and wild horses. Didn't see any bison but we did see wild horses and pronghorns which are antelope like animals. Wyoming has endless land and sky at times it made me feel so small.
Last night at a Little America truck stop we learned to park far as possible away from the trucks. They run all night and smell. We kept the bathroom fan on all night. We were going to stay at a BLM in Green River, Wyoming but there was flash flood warnings there so we didn't want to take a chance of getting stuck out in the wilderness.
