The scenery through central South Dakota is not the most exciting I’ve ever seen. It’s definitely more interesting than west Texas but not a whole lot. South Dakota is a prairie state – lots of small towns and farmland.

IMG_6296 We spent one night in Faith, SD at a nice little city park. Then we spent two nights in Pierre at another city park. This one had 50 amp service, level spots, close to the Missouri River and a really pretty park for $15/night. If you ever get to Pierre, stay at Griffin City Park. IMG_6292

About a zillion motorcycles have passed us going west towards Sturgis and I also counted 12 patrol cars headed that way. Heard on the news that two women had been killed on motorcycles this week – both of them were passengers when the back tires blew. So sad.

IMG_6281We did some exploring in Pierre (very little because it’s soo hot!) The capital building is beautiful and has a gorgeous man made lake right next to it.

I just wish the weather had cooperated better. This would really be a neat place to spend a little more time exploring.
