Boondocking at the Wall
At about 2 a.m., we boondocked in the back parking lot of Wall Drug, a honky-tonk tourist stop just east of Rapid City, SD. Most people just pass it by, but the lure of free camping was too great for us.
In the morning, we walked the dogs past Black Hills Gold souvenir shops and ate an $8 breakfast buffet (horrible 5-cent coffee).
It's our fourth day out; what an amazing journey. The wide-open land gently rolls in places and is wrinkled in others like dirty laundry. Sage brush and cattle intermingle. We see waterspouts, craggy trees, endless horizons.
