made multiple stops along the way for gas, or water and bean helped me walk the dogs  – until she saw this sign and then she wouldn’t get out of the car.  

Day 3 was only 83 miles of driving (yay!!!) to get to Hill City, SD, but our hotel check-in was late afternoon, so we stopped in Rapid City (nearest Starbucks) and got our coffee fix.  Then drove through some really scary, winding roads in Custer State Park – beautiful, but not sure I’d do it again!  Next up was the Wildlife Loop in Custer State Park, a much more relaxing drive than the mornings explorations.  The dogs and the bean really enjoyed that part of the day.
