Day 3 of our 9 day boondocking challenge.
We rested today. The solar did its job as soon as the sun stopped hiding behind the trees and a cloud. Coffee was ready before Shawna woke up.
In the afternoon, we drove to Hill City to visit a winery. Of course, some bottles were purchased.
On the way back to the campground, we stopped to update the blog. (or you would not be reading this today yet...)
The Black Hills have changed dramatically since the times of Custer expedition to the area. The purpose of the 1,200 member expedition was to search for Gold in the mountains. He found gold. The gold rush was on as soon as the information was out.
This area did have grizzly bears at one time. Custer killed his first grizzly here. The bear population diminished so that none were thought to be in the area. Recently some bear sightings have been made. The population is still so small that they do not have a count.
We are a couple who have started on a new adventure...
