If you know Sparky, you know she's an Indiana girl..she LIKES fall, cooler weather, COLD weather and yes, even snow! So, when she saw these temperatures, it was a big "YIPPEE!". Eldo, not so much. Sparky thought he was worried about the pipes freezing, but he says, "I'm not worried about the pipes freezing, I'm worried about ME freezing!"
We are at Elkhorn Ridge RV resort in Spearfish, SD for 7 nights. It's a little more expensive, but then again, many of the parks in this area average over 50 a night. Elkhorn Ridge is about 67.00 a night. Lots of amenities...a beautiful pool, nice walking paths, quite a few beautiful cabins, and a great location for visiting the Spearfish area.

It's 60+miles from the RV Park to Custer State Park, Mt. Rushmore, and Crazy Horse. There's the beautiful Spearfish Canyon Scenic Byway drive, which is about 15-20 minutes from the RV park. Four wheeling is huge in this area, and there are quite a few places to rent them. Sparky is VERY excited about the Mickelson Bike Trail, a 109 mile trail. She plans on riding that in the next day or so, just as soon as the weather breaks.
Today is a super rainy COLD day...so we are planning and researching our future travel plans. The wind is out of the north/northwest and it's raining hard, holding at 45 degrees for the moment, but heading downward. We will see you later, when it warms up. Sparky has a surprise in store for our readers, something you can do on a rainy cold day in September. See you later!
