We stayed in a gorgeous Holiday Inn Express while in Custer. It had only been open 2 months. And get this, it is closing in two weeks for the winter! In the back patio you could sit around a fire pit and there would be deer everywhere. I actually thought they were fake at first.
And then as we headed out the next morning we were surprised to see a humungous bison crossing the road! They actually run free in the wild. What a thrill!
We took a tour of the "original 1880 Town" near Murdo, South Dakota. A must see. Check out more about it HERE. The props from "Dances with Wolves" are on display in the upstairs of the round barn.
My favorite was the Longhorn Saloon. The inside was simply exquisite! I can only imagine the entertainment and laughter and carousing that filled this room every night!
Btw, We're in WISCONSIN!
I'm posting from Panera Bread in LaCrosse, WI. Had me the best Blueberry Muffin! Anyway, as we walk in we see FREE Wi-Fi!! Life is good.
Oh and, Randy & I slept in the van last night at a rest stop near Albert Lea, MN. We were sleeping by 10PM (8 PM Phoenix time) and didn't awake till 7 AM ( 5 AM Phoenix time)!! AND it was 38 degrees when we woke up! Yes, life is good.
