Last evening we said good-bye to Glenn and Michelle as they headed back to Boulder. It was great having them with us for a couple of days. Today’s route from Custer to Hot Springs was all along US Hwy 385. The downhill was great since we had to carry all our gear for the first time in a couple of days! We had planned on riding the Mickelson Trail but it rained hard in the early morning so we decided to use the highway. We rode through Wind Cave National Park. The park has a beautiful green landscape with Bison. Road construction in the park gave us the opportunity to gravel ride. Good news was they had not yet spread any oil or tar. We had lunch in Hot Springs and are camping tonight at a very nice KOA just outside of town.
