Hi All, How ironic, Keystone! We took a day and drove through the Badlands National Park, it was pretty and different, of course every curve was a picture. The only animals we saw there were the wild horses. In the evening we went to Mount Rushmore, we heard that the evening show was the one to see because of the lights. July 31ST we drove through Custer's State Park. Here we found some Bison, wild Burros, antelope, and many prairie dogs. It was a nice drive, the day ended up really hot. August 1ST we drove to Deadwood, SD to the cemetery where "Wild Bill and "Calamity Jane" are buried. On the way back we drove through Sturgis, the "big rally" is starting this weekend and there are all kinds of bikes every where, it was so interesting we drove through there twice. The day started out pretty cool in the 70's and ended up around 93. Tomorrow we are leaving this area and going into Wyoming. All is good with us both.

Until Later,

Jim and Kathy

PS, hope you enjoy the pictures!
