Day 49 Wall SD to Cedar Pass Campsite, Badlands National Park
Share
clear

I had breakfast at the Wall Drug Store and enjoyed their 5 cent coffee. This morning at 4:00AM we had a violent thunderstorm with lots of winds. I watched the tenters next to us get drowned trying to pack up their tent into their car. If they had just rode out the storm they would have been a lot better off. Other tent campers looked dry as a bone when they came out.

We took the Badlands Loop Road and enjoyed it so much we decided to stay at the campground. It is dry camping at each site, but since it's not too hot we have survived. The sky is beautiful and the sun set spectacular from our campsite.

Today’'s photo is of the Cliff Shelf. Thousands of years ago a massive block of stone broke loose from a cliff behind and compacted the soil below reducing erosion and allowing trees to grow.

Tomorrow we head for Mitchell SD and a time change.
