It's been a long day-- 14.5 hours on the road. Needless to say, our stops have been short. We have enjoyed talking, reading, listening to audio books, working puzzles and watching the scenery as we drove.
Since it's still technically winter, the landscape is mostly gray and brown and bare. But the sky was beautiful in western South Dakota late in the day. I snapped these pictures of our "rig" and our seemingly tireless driver at a rest area.
A few minutes later the sky began to change colors as the sun set. I took these pictures from the car window as we drove.
It was about 10:30pm CST when we got to our motel in Mitchell. We left home last night and we've already lost 2 hours. Our itinerary for tomorrow calls for about 12 hours on the road.
