Lucky me--it's time to pack up the camper and head west once again! This two-week adventure will be a combination of A) part Rez Ride 2010, B) part family vacation, and C) part Harley ride through Wyoming with friends.
This year, in 2010, our plan is to capture footage and scenery on the Lower Brule and Crow Creek Reservations in central South Dakota along the famous Lewis and Clark Trail. And as of today we've upped participation in the ride to four bikes!
B) For our family vacation we'll spend one week at the Horsethief Campground south of Hill City. Our youngest son David will join us, along with another family and their three kids. We'll do some of the typical family traditions, sightseeing, little bit of tourist shopping, and end each day with dinner back at the campground, followed with an evening campfire.
One author note: On Tuesday, July 27, I've been invited to speak to the Hill City Book Club at the Hill City Library. We'll be discussing Hidden Heritage...the Story of Paul LaRoche. Since many people in Hill City are fans of Paul LaRoche and Brule', it should be a fun evening! I am looking forward to our discussion.
C) On Sunday, August 1st, four other couples will join John and I for a circle tour through Wyoming. We're leaving from Hill City and taking some of the back roads west to Sheridan, then up to Cooke City, Montana. From there we head south into Yellowstone National Park and will spend one night in Grand Teton, Wyoming. Next we head east to Buffalo, and back to Hill City on the fifth and final day. We'll finish up our vacation with a couple days of riding in the always-beautiful Black Hills before returning to Minnesota.
My husband and I have been going to South Dakota at least once--and quite often twice--every summer since 2003...and each year part of the reason has involved Hidden Heritage and/or Brule'. On that note, let the adventure continue!
