Day 3 - Oct. 17, 2017
Devil's Tower rises from the prairie seemingly out of nowhere. This day they decided to have a "controlled" burn of the underbrush so we were only able to hike halfway around. Still, this is impressive! It was made famous in the 1977 movie "Close Encounters of the Third Kind". Then on to the Black Hills of South Dakota and another adventure tomorrow!
Day 5 - Oct. 19, 2017
Another long day across the prairie. Rapid City, SD to Sioux City, IA. On the way a quick stop at Wall Drug. A drug store in Wall, SD, basically, the middle of nowhere that attracts upwards of two million people a year (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wall_Drug). An interesting place.
