Some caves have a big entrance. Other's don't.
|That little hole is it|
|The boxwork is the lattice like structure dangling from the roof|
From there, we crossed the bald flat prairie to get to the Badlands.
|The southern section|
|The car and KC|
|Not nearly as colourful as ours|
|Big deep canyons|
|Yelling melodiously, as usual|
|Little campsite on the prairie|
|Note the dark foreboding skies|
On our way out of the badlands to our planned overnight stop in Mitchell, SD, we wanted to stop in at one of the newest National Parks, Minuteman Missile National Historic Site, which shows off the missile silo of a Minuteman II missile, plus an occasional tour of the underground launch control facility. Unfortunately, the silo was 15 miles west (we were heading east) and the tour was to start so late we would not get into Mitchell at any reasonable hour for dinner. That was a disappointment.
