We start the day with some good roads and nice cloud cover. We go through a short portion of the Badlands of South Dakota. These are aptly named as nothing could live there - minimal vegetation and animals. A gas stop at White River shows that we are really in American Indian country.
There are a few sprinkles in the morning and again as we have lunch down by the Missouri River.
We have seen many wind farms across the country. When they are in the distance, they look big, but when you see one blade like this one on a truck you realize they are ENORMOUS!
We watch the storm clouds as they start to gather... We head into some dark clouds, but then think again and turn around to outrun the storm. We outrun that one and turn to go around it - we hit a smaller storm with a strong 5 minute downpour that leaves us wet, but now cooler. We stop for the night in a very small town, Laurel, Nebraska. (population 976) We visited all 3 choices for food in town - every entry is pizza or fried food. Sigh...
