In November 2021, I scheduled a pick up of my Go Fast Camper in Montana. I took this as an opportunity to go explore some national parks on the way.
If you have any reason to drive I-90 in South Dakota, take, do not bypass, the badlands scenic bypass. These photos do not do the place justice.
The land is active in the sense that the badlands are ever changing, and are slowly eating away at the viewing locations that have been established.
And it's not all dirt and rocks:
Wind Cave National park is amazing. Take the cave tours:
The cave is being actively explored. They find more cave almost every week, thus the replaceable paper sign.
My opinion is to not bother visiting Mount Rushmore.
But do drive US Route 16A to Mount Rushmore.
My travel advice may be tainted by the fact that I was basically out there alone. The perks of traveling in the off season.
Mount Rushmore was the busiest place I was at all day.
