Day 35 - July 14, Hot Springs South Dakota to Chadron Nebraska, 53 miles

Last night we had thunder, lighting, and light rain off and on. In the morning when it started to rain again as we were packing up the tent, the question was do we go? A quick look at Weather Underground showed that we should have a gap in between the big storms as we head south. So off we went!  Our route today was US Hwy 385 all the way to Chadron.  We had low clouds, fog, rain and the temperature hovered around 57 degrees.  Is this really summer in the west?  Luckily US 385 has a nice wide shoulder to ride on.  Well, except for 11 miles of road construction where we had a plastic pylon to dodge every 100 feet!

Next state - Nebraska!  Sherri in rain attire

  1. Nebraska was home to Willa Cather, author of the classic "My Antonia", about Bohemian immigrants settling on farms. My great-grandmother was one of them. This trip brings back memories of books to me!
