In my last post I shared Camp Pleasant/Camp Plumb which was the location of Lewis and Clark's rest stop above and on the Missouri River.
We continue our westward trek on I-90. Our destination is the Badlands National Park. The scenery is starkly different, changing from rolling pastureland to craggy mountains popping up all around us. The contrast of the rugged terrain against the clear blue sky accented with white puffs of clouds is awesome.
We take a hike to experience the grandeur of the Badlands. Next to our path is a beautiful miniature wash created by the previous nights rain. I love the motion of the color that lie before me.
It directs us out to an overlook of the Badlands that leaves us breathless.
As far as the eyes can see, the "fingers" of the Badlands stretch before us.
After two nights in the campgrounds and in exploration, we move toward new sights and adventures. The mountains continue to put on a show of color and drama.
The motorhome is now pointed to Wall, South Dakota. There have been so many billboards along the interstate, promising free coffee, jewelry, ice cream and more. The build-up is much more than the town. Unlike the Corn Palace, with its beautiful murals, Wall and Wall Drug left us cold. It is just another tourist trap that we will not need to waste our time visiting Wall again.
We continue westward. What will we discover next?
Thanks for visiting. We appreciate the Amazon purchases that you make through this blog.
God Bless you all.....and God Bless our military.
