Day 3-almost there

Interior, United States


Debbie's log: the third stop of the day brings us to the Minute Man Missile site which was closed because it was Sunday. We did read the info sign and became aware that a missile launched from this site would reach Russia in 30 minutes. It is still raining. We ate lunch in the missile site parkin glot and then headed to the giant statue of a Prairie Dog and Prairie Dog town. The giant Prairie dog was a picture op and the gnome made his appearance as well. We purchased food to feed the real Prairie dogs, however because of the rain, they did not want to come out and play or eat the food offered. We tried. Now back into the RV to head to the badlands state scenic byway.

So after a quick stop at the Badlands National Park entrance sign, we paid our $15.00 entrance fee and started our incredible, although rainy, trip through the badlands. They are so beautiful. The rain did not stop us from taking one, short, hike and getting a few geocaches and lots of pictures. It was a loop that I am glad we did not miss. Now onto the tourist trap of Wall Drug.
