There's something really nice about waking up in a tent at a very quiet, picturesque campground and fishing first thing in the morning before making a simple breakfast of oatmeal and campfire coffee.
The wet weather didn't stop me from enjoying roads that I love including Needles Highway.
Buffalo! When I first experienced riding through a buffalo herd back during Sturgis 2007, I had a sort of nervous excitement and thought it was awesome. Since then, I've ridden around buffalo a few more times and each time they freak me out more and more. They are so big and so unafraid of people and vehicles. They're still really cool though.
I went to Wind Cave National Park for the first time. It was actually my first time in any cave. After a quick tour outside, we headed into the cave (down a staircase, not through that hole).
Wind Cave is well-known for this "boxwork" formation.
The weather cleared up briefly but that was about to change.
Storms roar through next. Come back tomorrow.
