    Black Hills in South Dakota

    May 13, 2017 in the United States

    Mit Carley und Avalon ging es zum Abschluss nach South Dakota. Eigentlich stand dieser Staat nicht auf meiner Reiseroute, aber ich bin froh, dass Carley mich eingeladen hat.
    Wir haben uns den Wildlife Loop, den Cluster State Park, den Needles Highway, den Black Hills State Forest, Mount Rushmore und Old Macdonald's Farm angesehen.

    Black Hills

    July 9, 2017 in the United States

    Day seven: The first week is almost over and it was such a blast! Today we started with exploring our first national park - the Badlands. There you can feel the force of nature, it's amazing. Also we saw some wild animals like sheeps 🐑, prairie dogs 🐿 and - the best is comming at the end - two bisons 🐂🐂! Foxes live there as well but we didn't see them. But we heard them in the morning.
    After leaving Badlands we took a road off (what fun! 😈) to Rapid City. There we visited a trade fair for oldtimer. It was that nice! 🚗
    Back on the road we went to Mount Rushmore Memorial in Black Hills and afterwards to Hill City for eating something. We found a nice looking restaurant and chose it for rest. I tried a burger with buffalo meat and national beer from Black Hills. Both were very tasty! 🍔🍺
    When we was done we tried to find a campground and found one at Center Lake in Custer State Park.
    At the end of the day we got to know new campers sitting on the campfire, just hanging. But I was really tired so I fell asleep very quickly.

    Devils tower/ Dead presidents

    October 28, 2017 in the United States

    After a 6 hour drive, we went to devil's tower national monument. That's a dope rock. It's 867ft tall! Someome climbed it in 18min! Also it's really crazy looking. Makes sense why it was in that one sci Fi movie. They know it was created by lava flows but aren't sure exactly how. The streaks are where the lava hardened and cracked. Most of the rocks cracked in hexagons because thats nature's strongest shape! Then it was a 2 hr drive to Mount Rushmore. It's smaller than I thought it would be. I remember learning about it when I was little and was excited to go. But Samantha Lynn Larson spoiled it for me by saying that it's located in the black hills of South Dakota, sacred Sioux land. Which our ancestors kicked them off of and then pretty soon after built a shrine to our favorite white people. An interesting symbol of patriotism. Other than that it's pretty cool?

    More adventures tomorrow.

    Crazy roads, crazy trail.

    June 28, 2016 in the United States

    Today had a forecast for thunderstorms. We started the day on Iron Mountain Road. It was built so that the one lane tunnels aim at views of Mount Rushmore. After that, we saw the deadheads and Alyson earned her Jr ranger badge.
    As we left, thunderstorms were moving in. We drove west towards Needles Highway. It was so narrow that we could reach out of the truck to touch trees. We stopped at Sylvan Lake. We hiked around the lake and did the first bit of Sunday Gulch trail. We may return tomorrow if weather permits. We had to return to the campground to move the camper to the next spot.Read more

    Second day's drive

    June 27, 2016 in the United States

    We woke a little late, but did do on purpose. We had pancakes for breakfast. We wanted to feel like we were camping.
    We drove through Nebraska. When we left the Platte valley, the scenery changed. I finally felt like I was on vacation. The hills were really neat looking. The drive felt long today, I guess we were still tired of being in the truck. As we neared Badlands, the road became really rough. We arrived at Custer state park around dinner and decided not to go anywhere else.Read more
