Great Weekend for a Road Trip

Can you believe we are in the 'BRRR' months??

SeptemBER,OctoBER, NovemBER, DecemBER!!

With harvest and haying complete...


We had 2 choices for the long weekend...

Stay home and work

OR

Hit the road!!



So it was off to our favorite places to go to...

Deadwood, South Dakota


Up in the misty clouds and pine trees!!



I love the historic homes


Especially the Adams House - 

one of the founders in Deadwood


There are fabulous canyons to tour

We made a stop at Thunderhead Falls



One of the oldest gold mines in the area


Checked our Mt. Moriah Cemetery


It always amazes me how these trees are able
 to hang on
 to life on the side of the mountain


Their root systems is amazing!!


A cute gourd garden on the terrace wall



We did a day trip to Rapid City
and
checked out a local farmers market


Melons


Heirloom tomatoes


Honey


Flowers


Eggplants


A couple of food trucks


We decided on a Smoked pork lunch


and a couple of fresh peaches


We tried our luck at some gambling

Arnold was drawn to have 14 seconds in the cash machine.


He managed to squeeze $52 through the little slot!

It was a great getway.

Sure beat staying home and working!
