Rainy night and morning. Departed Deadwood in drizzle and fog late Friday morning then north to Red Trail Campground in Medora, North Dakota the gateway to Theodore Roosevelt National Park. A very STRAIGHT drive through the prairie past crops of sunflowers, corn and grazing cattle.
Saturday dawned cold and wet and remained so for the entire day. We went to the Painted Canyon and South Unit Visitor Centers at Theodore Roosevelt National Park then did the 36 mile Scenic Loop Drive. The drive was fantastic with grand views, buffalo, prairie dogs and even a badger (no pic).
Sunday was perfect hiking weather, cool and partly cloudy. We hiked the Painted Canyon Trail, only four and a half miles but a bit treacherous as it was very muddy...lots of slipping and sliding. Saw hoodoos, petrified wood, deer and lots of buffalo tracks and dung.
