Day 12

Chicken corn chowder never tasted so good! I am camping in the Ft. Pierre National Grassland tonight, after another amazing day. It started with a tour of the Native American Museum, in Chamberlain. Because of headwinds, Pierre was out of reach, but I decided against staying in Ft Thompson, wanting to make more miles on a fine day. The Grasslands turned out to be a great option (thank you, Marilyn, once again).

The antilope were not sure what to think of this strange intruder, but finally moved on. Next an owl hovered above, assessing me. Adding to the night sounds are the occasional coyote howl (I hope it's a coyote; parts of "Dances With Wolves" were filmed here).

Good night.

  1. Sure enjoy tracking your progress. Perhaps that owl was trying to decide if he could take you or not. Remember that owl walk we went on camping that time? That was cool.
