What a day!! The weather was perfect the drive was incredible!! Nothing but snow capped mountains, pine trees, lakes and raging creeks running down the mountains. Saw so much wildlife mainly black bears with cubs. A couple of moose also. We haven't even had the radio on. To engrossed in the scenery. Perfect accommodations tonight. Remote and secluded.
Just entered South Dakota! First day of travel went pretty smooth. Minor change of plans this am. . . Had planned on taking my vehicle but at the last minute decided to take Mike's truck! A little bit of extra work - but I think it was the right decision. More room, better tires, 4 wheel drive for the snow that is predicted, etc.... full info
