Wow, this week is done ! Our toughest week so far on the Big Ride, as we did 56 miles, then 88, then 112, then 78, and today 80. We rode from Newcastle to Rapid City this morning and picked up our 5th state that we visit on this ride across the USA.
I rolled out first this morning. Wasn't sure what kind of a day we were going to have, and quite frankly I was hoping that it would not be like yesterday. Yesterday was just plain tough. I think it beat everyone down, both physically and mentally. But this morning started out with a really nice breakfast at the Senior Center in Newcastle, where we were staying, and I headed out on my own.

|Foggy morning going towards Custer State Park|
This is actually outside the Custer State Park, but in the National Forest. There is quite a bit of deadfall around, from fires in previous years. With all of the clouds and all it was quite pretty. Think I had some Sarah Brightman on my iPod
|In the park, lots of deadfall, but pretty|
|Back on the plains, loved these horses !|
