|Badlands National Park|
We checked into the motel and drove in to Badlands National Park, paid the $15 fee (good for 1 week) and drove from west to east stopping at all the overlooks we passed. This was a great road trip.

To get there, follow I-90 East from Rapid City about an hour to Wall, SD at exit 110. Also in the area are the Minuteman Missile sites along I-90 at exits 116, 127 and 131. Wounded Knee is about 60 miles south inside the reservation.
