We woke up to a nasty, rainy, cold (about 50 degrees) day. Glad that it was today and not yesterday when we were visiting Mt Rushmore, Crazy Horse and all the other sights nearby. We headed west toward Yellowstone doing a little side trip to see Devil's Tower, WY. They used it when they filmed Close Encounters of the Third Kind. It was supposedly formed from volcano lava that hardened and the mountain itself eroded away. In all actuality, I think it is a giant petrified tree stump.

We stopped for the night in Buffalo, Wyoming to visit with Richard Kendall, who went to high school with Mike K and Connie T. They hadn't seen each other in many years. It's good to see old friends! Everyone should do it more often.

We'll be heading out to Yellowstone tomorrow. I'm sure we'll take off bright and early. Around 10. Maybe 11.
