June 29, 2019: Last night we went to the Medora Musical, along with around 2,500 other folks. The musical is a first class operation that is in its 55th season. It started out fantastic with two bull elk on the skyline of the hill behind the stage that we watched after getting into our seats.
The show itself tells the story of Medora in a musical and its many characters. It was pretty expensive, but very worth it. We highly recommend seeing it if you are ever up this way.
Mr. Roosevelt and me.
The show venue. All those empty seats were full by the time the show started. The buildings in the background were on tracks and went to the sides during parts of the show.
This morning we saddled up and left this beautiful National Park and headed south. We did some grocery shopping in Spearfish, SD and visited the new geographical center of the USA that includes Alaska and Hawaii in Belle Fourche.
We are camped tonight at the Fish ‘N Fry campground just a few miles south of Deadwood. After setting up we drove into Deadwood so Jeri could gamble a bit and we had a delicious dinner at the Buffalo Bodega on Main Street. This place is the oldest continuous restaurant in Deadwood. Would you believe over 170 years?!!
Tomorrow we will move about 50 miles south down to Custer, SD where we will spend at least two nights at the Custer Crazy Horse Campground, 4 miles south of the Crazy Horse Monument (still unfinished).
