Yesterday we walked the streets of Deadwood, South Dakota, the only city in the nation officially designated as a National Historic Landmark. Deadwood is known for colorful past and for its casinos. If you’re interested in Wild Bill Hickok, Calamity Jane, or the well-preserved history of a genuine old-west town, this is a place you’ll want to visit.
One of the reasons we chose our Class A motorhome was for its kitchen. I follow a Paleo diet plan and that means lots of organic, fresh vegetables, fruits, meats, and nuts. We eat very well and we almost always eat at home. To make this work on the road, I need a reasonable size refrigerator/freezer, an oven that works, plenty of storage space, and enough counter surface to prepare meals from scratch. Ruby has it – and I enjoy cooking in her kitchen!
Today was our second trip into Rocky Mountain National Park and I’m glad we had the opportunity to see it from another angle. We took the Old Fall River Road, which was the first auto route in the park. It’s 11-miles of primarily gravel road, one-way only, obviously intended to be driven slowly and savored. The views are spectacular, winding through switchbacks (without guard rails) that overlook steep canyons. Although a road from the 1920’s, narrow and curvy, it is suitable for driving without a four-wheel drive vehicle.
