Day three is now under my belt. I drove through hundreds of flat miles in Minnesota and South Dakota, where I am spending the night. Due to some freak scary lightning storms I cut my hiking plans short today and basically just drove through the Badlands. But I did a little scrambling down the rock formations and did some short walks to get the wanderlust out of my system. Tomorrow the plan is to head into the mountains, and weather-permitting, hit the trails somewhere further west.
