Badlands & The Black Hills

From heavy rainfall to heaps of flooding, it's going to be a rough year for a lot of people.  The resilience of the spirit here is amazing.  After the reunion, we caravaned through the Badlands and sought refuge from the heat (108 degrees) in the Black Hills.  The weather there was beautiful sunny days, and cool Washington-like nights.  The landscape ranged from rolling prairies to jagged peaks, with prairie dogs, antelope, wild horses, bison and burrows along the way. 

Our first road buddies!
