Well, How Did We Get Here? Miles, Feet Climbed, Maps & Profiles.
Previous updates described how we travelled from Seattle to Spearfish in the first 9 weeks of our adventure. Now find out where we went & what we did in Week 10! Hopefully picking a single photo to represent each day will refresh my mind when it comes to looking back on my adventure!
Alex & Mary welcomed us with beer & great conversation on Saturday. Sunday was a real adventure on the crushed limestone & gravel of The George S. Mickelson Trail. Monday was Independence Day & we spent it exploring Crazy Horse, Custer State Park & had our first views of Mount Rushmore. On Tuesday we experienced Mount Rushmore up close & learned about its history, before heading to Rapid City. We had a rare Rest Day on Wednesday & enjoyed some recovery & relaxation. Thursday gave us a brief glimpse of Badlands National Park & a night in a Camping Cabin. Finally, on Friday we had the full Badlands experience – absolutely breath-taking!!!
Another incredible week of making new friends, getting off the beaten track & exploring some of America’s best scenery on our Coast to Coast adventure.
