Another day in Paradise

Being used to the instant internet in your home can make campground internet very frustrating. They may advertise wifi but it is not equal in all parts of the campground and is very much influenced by the time of day. I have found early morning to be the best time to post. Of course I never seem to get to it in the morning. :-)

Yesterday we toured Jewel Cave which is the second longest cave in the World. It was some what of a strenuous hike. There were 722 stairs that went up and then down and then back up again for one and a half miles. Made us huff and puff a little! There were some nice crystal formations but they were not very colorful. I was glad I went and we got to use our National Park Senior Passes!

We had to drive past the Crazy Horse Memorial on the way home so we stopped and I took a picture from the road. I wanted to compare that picture with the ones that we took the last time we visited. I don't think I am going to see much of a difference. It's going to take a long time to finish.

After we left Crazy Horse we drove the Needles Highway. This is a very scenic route with lots of twists and turns and several one lane tunnels. It can get a little hairy at times especially when you meet a large tour bus. But the scenery is gorgeous and we did get to see some wildlife.              

Today we took the motor home to get the last two tires replaced and all 6 balanced. I definitely will feel safer now.
