We spent a lot of our time in Hill City today. Last night the owner of the Chute Rooster let us park our RV in his parking lot after finding out all the RV parks were closed for the season.
We had breakfast at the Hill City Cafe where I found a guy “Mike” that remembered my grandfather as the Sheriff of the town back in the 60’s and 70’s.
It was great to talk to him and have him share a lot stories he had about my Grandfather as the Sheriff of the town when he owned the local bar.
After having breakfast at the Hill City Cafe we roamed around town and chatted with the locals. Very nice people, just like I remembered it from being a young boy going to visit my Grand Parents in the summer.
We visited all the shops along Main Street Hill City After that we walked around Main Street to see what has changed and went to see the 1880 train for some candid shots. When we were done we stopped in Custer SD to take some photos of the Flintstones park were I remember sneaking in jumping the fence with my cusin to avoid admission cost.
We got some great photos of deer along the highway and headed to Devils Tower in Wyoming to take more photos.
We are currently about 4o miles into Montana and plan to spend most of the day driving through Montana tomorrow. It’s a little over 5oo miles to make it into Idaho and then it’s a nice drive to Washington State from there.
I didn’t post any photos from today because our internet connection is iffy at best. Stay tuned for the photos on the website tomorrow sometime.
We could have stayed all week in Hill City and surrounding areas for a week or more but we had to stay on schedule as we are already a day behind our travels. We plan to go back some time and hit everything during a longer stay.
Mt. Rushmore and Crazy Horse was amazing to see since it’s changed so much since I was a child on summer break.
I took a lot of photos of deer along the way and many photos of Devils Tower in Wyoming.
I hope everyone is enjoying the photos page as much as I am posting them.
Take care, there’s more to come.
