Rockin’ the Badlands

We conquered the Badlands today! It was a short ride, and we took many breaks to hike up rock formations and enjoy the scenic outlooks. Most of us have never been to this part of South Dakota which made the day that much more exciting. We have some very daring team members that took the risk of climbing up rocks to get some awesome pictures. The downhills were amazing, but were then followed by some steep uphills. All the passing drivers were supportive, and we even had some cheering us along as we climbed out of the Badlands.

We were able to talk to many people today about our ride and met numerous travelers from the Midwest and, more specifically, the Chicagoland area. Even though the team didn’t want to leave the national park, we eagerly looked forward to arriving in Wall to experience Wall Drug. Wall Drug did not disappoint. Team members enjoyed ice cream, pie, buffalo burgers, and more. It was a fantastic day to one of the coolest days of the summer so far! Thank you St. Patrick’s Church for hosting us tonight!
