We Have Returned From South Dakota!

This article was updated on October 15th, 2020

We picked South Dakota because it had some of the lowest COVID-19 cases and because neither of us had visited many of the monuments or parks in the greater area! 🙂

Custer State Park

This photograph was captured on the Sunday Gulch Trail in the State Park. It is either at the beginning or end depending on which starting point of the loop you choose. We enjoyed it at the end of ours and it was one of the best views without power lines in sight, plus there were raspberry bushes all around this area! 😀

This is a turnaround spot for RVs which has a nice short overlook trail.

Rapid City, SD Supercharger

We spent 1 day, 16 hours driving.

We spent 1 day, 10 hours charging (AC) (at Home & our last hotel stay).

We ended up spending 8 hours, 19 minutes charging (DC aka Tesla Supercharging). We used these opportunities to walk about, explore Wall Pharmacy, or catch up on our Netflix watch list.
