June 10,2015 Wall Drug, SD.

 Mom loves older Skinner Cowboys !!
 This is as close as we get to Mt. Rushmore
 Here I get my ride on a Jackalope Rabbit
 Drive all day for a Free Cup of Ice Water !!
Here it is .... Wall Drug Store on Main St. in Wall, SD.

June 10, .. We leave Mitchell at 9 am today still heading West on Rt 90. 4 hours later we arrive in Wall, SD. for the ultimate Tourist Trap ?? This place is pretty cool and gives travelers a place to stop and unwind from driving. The main store has the strip of many smaller stores as front design but as soon as you pick a door you are in one big room with walls dividing the different items for sale.
      We saw signs for Free Ice Water all along Rt 90 for over a 100 miles. You see the cup we get and refills are free too! Coffee is only 5 cents a cup too. I got a free bumper sticker too.
     We walked around for an hour looking at all the things. I found cowboy boots for $500.00.... Mom said NO !! Out back of main store there is lots more to see plus many photo opportunities to smile. There is a light rain falling but feels good and cools down the Hot Day.
   We continue on Rt 90 West thru Sturgis, yes where the motorcycles gather during the 1st week of August. We go north on Rt 85 to find a Passport America Campground in Belle Fouche,SD. The rate was $16/water & electric .... Tired we stop here for the night, drove 350 miles today. That's enough for us old people?
