Alaska '08, Day 71, Sundance to Wall

Thu Aug 21, 2008

We drove up to Devil's Tower. Nice views of the tower on the drive in. We hiked around the tower and the kids got yet another junior ranger badge! We even saw a white tailed doe and fawn along the trail.

From Devil's Tower we drove on through Rapid City on to Wall. We didn't have time for a stop in Rapid City, would have liked to drive the needles highway or run up to Sylvan Lake. We stopped in Sturgis to pick up some bike week stuff for Tommy and TC, bike week was first week of August. Lots of development in Rapid City. There is now a Cabela's along the highway, and there is now one in Mitchel.

We got into Wall around 6 PM, stayed at Sleepy Hallow campground like before. At sundown we drove a little ways through the Badlands park. Saw lots of mule deer and some big horn sheep. Hoped to see some owls but it was too dark by the time we got down to the prairie dog town.

364 miles today.

9208 miles so far.
