Day 2 - Badlands, Mount Rushmore
Picture-A-Day Day 2, Sunday May 21, 2017 - the Badlands. The tripod was set up in the road to capture this so fortunately there wasn't much traffic. We also visited Mount Rushmore
Day 2 - Mount Rushmore
Another Picture-A-Day for Day 2 - Mount Rushmore. We grabbed a friendly lady to take this picture for us.
Day 3 - Yellowstone!
Picture-A-Day for Day 3, Monday May 22, 2017 - Yellowstone! We entered the park through the east entrance and found that the east side was still covered with lots of snow.
Day 4 - Tuesday May 23, 2017
Day 5 - Lower Geyser Basin and Tetons
Picture-A-Day for Wednesday 5/24/17. We made stops at Midway Geyser Basin and Grand Prismatic, Firehole Falls, and walked the Lower Geyser Basin, followed by a short little jaunt to the Grand Tetons.
Day 6 - Thursday 5/25/17
Picture-A-Day Thursday 5/25/17. Several stops in the park today, including a hike at Canyon along the south rim trail and the 328 stairs of Uncle Tom's Trail.
Day 8 - Heading Home
Picture-A-Day Saturday 5/27/17, heading home. On Friday we left the park in the early morning starting our journey home. As we didn't find out that the Beartooth Highway was open we ended up getting on the road earlier than expected, which allowed us time to stop at the Little Bighorn. Somehow we didn't get a picture of the day for Friday, so this one is from Saturday when we stopped at the Devil's Tower.
Day 2 - Early morning just west of Chamberlain SD
Morning of Day 2 in South Dakota. Very little traffic, clear skies, and smooth roads ahead. And 80 mph speed limit!
South Dakota at 80 mph
South Dakota - starting to drive into weather
South Dakota - looking good
Day 1 Overnight - Chamberlain South Dakota
Saturday we drove as far as Chamberlain South Dakota and spent the night in this Quality Inn. It was quiet, the room was nice, and the shower was great if you were 4'6". Anything over that and you have to limbo. All in all a nice stop though.
First real view of the Badlands, Sunday morning.
