McDonald's, gasoline, car wash, casino and chinese buffet. Pick one or pick all. An American Exclusive.
Pulled over on the side of Forest Road 270-1c for a free and quiet night of dispersed camping. We did hear a pack of howling coyote and an owl last night. We also met a rancher driving on the roads with his ATV, checking on his cattle.
The road to Mt Rushmore is mostly through the national forest.
Embarking on a 5000 feet climb up the mountain via our truck camper to Bighorn National Forest. We were hoping to see bighorn sheep but was enveloped by fog at higher elevations. There was rain, and a short sleet storm!
