Our 49th Anniversary..travels through Wyoming and into South Dakota! Life is good :)


If it's bologna and white bread it's our anniversary! Happy 49th sweetie! 
Thank you Karen for the wine 💘

We woke up this morning at the rest stop in Wyoming. 49 years of marriage and I get to wake up at Rest Area?...LOL. Just kidding, it was awesome! I set the alarm for 0500, turned the stove on for coffee and the heater for warmth.  Does it get any better?!

Good morning Wyoming! 💖

I love Wyoming..if I had to pick a new state, would definitely be in the running!

Our campsite for the night!


Had our coffees and actually looked at a few blogs as we had mobile hotspot service. Ken took a shower, I cleaned up and made simple breakfast burritos for later in the am.  We were out of there by 0710, which was earlier than the day before! 

Had a beautiful ride stopping in Rawlins, WY to gas up and pull into the next door parking lot to have our breakfast. The drive through WY was incredible watching the changing terrain.  GIP (girl in the phone)..kept us on the right track following the shortest route to Deadwood, SD. 

Rawlins, WY 

This place needs some TLC..but oh so beautiful! 

Department of Corrections Training

Excuse the bugs on the pictures.. 😞

Looked like the road was going through the trees..but it didn't 😅

Alcova Lake..6 campgrounds! Just gorgeous

Where the poor people live..LOL. I swear we've seen more water in WY 
than anywhere else! 


We went from plains, to hills, to mountains, to red rock country to pine trees! It was just too much beauty! 

This was called Hole In the Rock..not sure the story..

The ranch in the above picture was below this rock! Cool huh!

Apparently this was a trap for Buffalos sad huh?! Closed to the public right now. 

We had a late lunch in Gillette, WY next to where we gassed up. I know 5 star right?! Had  our traditional, yummy, once a year bologna on white bread with cheese  sandwiches with a few chips. Our wedding night dinner 49 years ago 💜

On the road again..110 more miles to Deadwood.  It went by quickly. I tried calling a few RV parks that were Passport America. Several of the parks close at the beginning of September. Something to remember.  

Deadwood SD..

On the way to Sturgis, SD

Our greeter at the campground! 
They've got tons of tent sites for the Sturgis Rally

We ended up at the Days End RV Park and Campground in Sturgis SD. Passport America is only good Sunday through Thursday and you have to stay two nights. Ken was able to talk her into giving us the rate for one night. However it worked, we only paid $43.00 for 2 nights and a full hookup pull through. She looked tired and said she's glad they close October 15th as they can't get anyone to work.  Poor thing. 

I would recommend this park to anyone! They are Passport America, and regular rates are very reasonable. The park is clean, quiet, full hook ups or not, just very nice. Pictures tomorrow! 

It's cool outside so we came inside to finish celebrating :) Tomorrow we're heading towards Mt Rushmore and Custer State Park for the day. Deadwood on Saturday, just to play tourist! 😊 After that we'll see what happens! 

Aaron's Football Team did spotlight cards..💙 I love that smile! 💙 One of the 
two cutest 16 year olds I know and Love! 💙

Have a wonderful evening! Thanks for all the FB wishes 💗


  1. Hole in the wall was the hide-out of Butch Cassidy and the sundance kid

  2. I love that country ... the views are stunning. The wind, not so much. Congrats on your 49th with many more to go!! I laughed at the bologna!!!

    1. The bologna is tradition LOL. I agree about the wind, but yesterday it was pushing us which is always nice for gas mileage!

  3. I love that house! Wouldn't it be neat to see inside?
    congratulations again!

  4. Your close to Devils Tower when in that part of the country .
