Greetings from Deadwood! I arrived safely in Rapid City yesterday and met up with my brother Rob who flew in from Houston. Our Aunt Cookie and her best friend Linda picked us up and after a huge lunch we made the drive into Deadwood itself. We didn't do too much, just a little gambling and a little sitting on the porch. Today also wasn't too eventful, but we got up early and had some Southern style breakfast courtesy of Linda. Then it was time for some sightseeing. So off we go through the other tiny towns, along the back roads, motorcycles passing every which way. The route? The hour or so drive from Deadwood through Lead and up through Spearfish Canyon. As much as I love to travel through the biggest cities in the world, there is something to be said about the awesome vistas of American nature. Here is a small sample of the sights we saw. Just creeks and trees and mountains. Enjoy the guest appearance of Rob as we tried not to fall in the creek!
