Eoin’s Blog – Day 22 – Spearfish to Rapid City (55 miles)

Sunday 22 August

After a nice rest day in Spearfish, we hit the road on a hot Sunday morning. Although the distance was not too demanding, today was a scorcher. The temperature topped out at 105F which equates to 40.5C. Ouch. We’re lucky we invested in good suncream.

Arriving into Rapid City, we checked into America’s Best Value Inn and headed straight for their outdoor pool. Needless to say it was a huge relief to get in the water on such a scorching day.

That evening we drove to Mount Rushmore to get a few snaps of the famous faces. It’s a impressive place and has an interesting history.

    Glad you listened to all my lectures about suncream over the years, sounds like you are achieving so much every day! There will definitely be a book to be written about your great adventure, with a whole chapter devoted to punctures!
