We are heading to our campsite in now
Today we were stunned by the amazing views driving over Bear Tooth Pass. The kids played in the snow at the top.
We saw a bear driving to Gardener! There we were fortunate to have wildlife photographer Tom Murphy present to us.
Now on to our campsite for camp set up and sleep.... Long day!

Headed to Bear Tooth Pass... (good thing Ryan Sheetz is not here, it scares him)
Whew! A long day yesterday! Everything went beautifully. We drove through an impressive lightening storm on the way to our campsite last night. We timed it perfectly and arrived at our site in the Badlands to set up with no rain. We woke to clear skies and an amazing sunrise. The kids had a chance to play around a bit before we packed up and headed to Wall Drug. We filled our bellies there and are now on the bus heading to catch a view of Mount Rushmore and then stop at the Crazy Horse memorial.
Bill is currently giving the students a short lesson on the Crow Indians of the area. We are looking forward to being guests on their reservation tonight.
We are feeling very fortunate.
