From Gardiner, MT to Rapid City, SD

We left Gardiner, MT on Wednesday, May 12, heading to Mt. Rushmore near Rapid City, SD. On our way we stopped overnight in Sheridan, WY... partly because the ride was too long to go straight through, and partly because we needed to color in the state of WY on our map as a state we've slept in! The park, Peter D's RV Park, was right off the highway and very nice... small, but nice, and the owners were very friendly. As a matter of fact, I don't think we've met any unfriendly rv park owners/managers. Our ride from Gardiner to Rapid City, SD was interesting... most of the ride was through snow country... it's May for heaven sakes!

We arrived in Rapid City, SD on Thursday, May 13, and stayed at the Lazy J RV Park... it was situated high above the town and we had a great view of the town at night with the lights on. Again, the owners were very friendly and helpful... they told us where to go for a good meal... the Firehouse.

Our 'things to do' while in Rapid City include visiting Deadwood, Sturgis, Custer State Park, and of course, Mt. Rushmore and Crazyhorse. These will all be discussed in the next blog... stay tuned!
