After a terrifying night with thunder, lightening and pouring rain, we left Rapid City to head for Central South Dakota. A new day, a new time zone. As you can see below, I don’t like riding in Madi when she’s moving even if mom gives me motion sickness tablets. Mom thought it was funny to take this picture of me on our trip over here. At least someone was smiling.
After a short visit to Pierre (the capital of South Dakota with a whopping 14,000 people) we headed to our home for the next few days. The campsite is out on the Missouri River (above the Oahe dam) and is far away from anyone. It’s fantastic as we have lots of room to roam and our own access to the river, which is needed when it’s 90 degrees with 90% humidity. I think we are going to love it here!
We’ve only been here a couple of hours, but I’ve already been swimming!
I’ll be sure to update you on our next adventures – The Badlands, Corn Palace & Souix Falls. Until then I’m going to go jump in the river and cool off!
