Day 6 Ft Robinson SP, NE to Oreville NFCG, SD:

Off by 9 AM. First to Walmart in Chadron, NE. Then a drive by Gandparents Gireau home on Shelton Street in Chadron. Only visible change is the absence of the big Polyanna Poplars down the center of the drive and Grandad's roses. Now the drive is a straight shot into the garage.

Next stop was Wind Cave NP, SD. No one went into the cave, but we stopped at the visitor center where we got Stamps & Patches (S&P). Then lunch on the road to the forest service campground. We were able to get two site close to each other and the vault latrine. Once camp was set up, we piled into Magee's truck and went to Mt. Rushmore National Memorial. As usual, it is really inspiring. We got to see a Profile of Washington from the access road that we had not seen before, despite numerous visits. Jenna earned another Junior Ranger Badge.
