We’ll be posting a “Colorado” blog entry soon as our journey will soon take us into Utah for the month of June to see the Big 5 national parks(Arches, Canyonlands, Capitol Reef, Bryce Canyon and Zion).
But we decided to throw together a video of something really special we did in the Colorado Springs area – drive to the top of Pike’s Peak!
It was an amazing experience – the views are almost impossible to describe. Turn on your sound, and click below. We hope you enjoy it as much as we enjoyed the drive!
It’s been quite awhile since we last posted our RV adventures. Our apologies to family and friends who have been waiting and asking for updates. We have a few weeks behind us so let’s get started by backtracking.
Like I’ve said before, aside from all the reading and research, the actual art of RVing is all new to us. “The trip is never as planned but it’s always an adventure”. In this entry I will share 2 of the most challenging events of our adventures so far. Welcome to our version of RVing 101!Continue reading
After we left the Badlands, we headed east and overnighted at a nondescript campground in Sioux Falls, SD. The next morning, we drove “Beauty” and the “Beast” due south towards the Omaha, Nebraska area.Continue reading
Wednesday evening we went back to Wind Cave National Park for a visit to Rankin Ridge lookout in an attempt at seeing Elk or at least to hear the bugle of the male bull in rut. Here is where the park ranger told us a few days earlier elk herds were spotted. We parked the truck in the trailhead parking lot and made the 1 mile trek up the Rankin Ridge trail.
After a week of “taking care of business” duties such as establishing SD residency, obtaining SD drivers licenses and transferring truck title, etc., Kevin and I were ready to take in some South Dakota culture and beauty. We booked a tour through “Black Hills Open-Top-Tours“.
The tour was 6 hrs. The tour offered breathtaking beauty as far as we could see, with many different landscapes (open prairie and meadows, pine and spruce forests, rock formations) and lessons in the history of the hills, land and wildlife.
