Last night was my first hail storm in this motorhome, scary is putting it mildly but the old girl suffered no visible damage. I was lucky.
It is a short drive to Deadwood SD another must see in the area. A lot of history and gambling in this little town.
The Adams Museum and founders victorian house tour offer a huge gold nugget and more fossils.
You can visit the graves of Bill Hickok and Calamity Jane if you wish to pay admission.
I headed out of town on Alt 14 toward Spearfish SD, and another scenic Black Hills drive entering Spearfish Canyon I was surprised by the tree damage from the storm the night before, the crew working on tree stabilization said a tornado had gone through the canyon, the following picture is the tree top damage. The local I talked to said you usually could barely see the rock for the trees.
The day was gray, but the drive was still great.
The decision to rent a car for the week was worth it, I usually would not spend the extra money, but no regrets on this leg of my journey.
Tomorrow I head for Devils Tower.
