Traveling these smaller Country Roads meant we only knew we entered South Dakota by looking at the GPS no sign or nothing:

Got some wild Turkeys on picture:

Some slab with big fields around it:

Plenty of hay balls around seems like they are going to waste?

Another encounter with the law, but luckily this guy just liked the bikes using them back in the military and hardly ever saw them after that:

Friendly police

The heavy rains and snow melts had forced them to open the flood gates at this dam, they also had an entire park under water:

Spending plenty of time on Country Roads we ran across some buildings loosing the battle with mother nature:

Nature is winning

The roads are simply an East – West and North – South grid that is long and straight:

More long straight gravel roads

Going out on this muddy field to get a picture by the tractor:

After getting up to speed it flung the mud off, my dad wanted to be in front while that happened:


Had to wait for some cowboys herding cattle across the road, got some thanks for waiting for them to finish:

Cattle being hearded

Got a tip about where to eat from the cowboy so we went there for dinner, just off the Highway near Draper:
