Day 6: We play "biker tourist"

Woke up to threatening skies, but no rain. Had breakfast - pancakes, a la Kevin - and then we all headed out to see the sights. First stop was the Crazy Horse monument. Wow, what a huge project. Quite impressive.

Next we rode by Mt. Rushmore and viewed the presidents from several angles. See photos on Facebook. Finally, we rode through Custer State Park with the intention of seeing lots of buffalo. With the exception of the nice ride - many curving roads - we were disappointed with the no-show bison.

We finished the days ride in Hill City, where we did some shopping while we waited out the rain that finally decided to fall in earnest. During a respite in the precipitation, we made our way back to the lodge. Once more we are safe and sound.

But we may venture out later for ice cream.
