We are now into prime Sturgis week, bikes are everywhere and the sounds continue all day with no break.It quiets down in the later evening and even with many bikers in camp by 10 pm the campground is dead quiet.
We watched the Sturgis mayor's ride come into the park. They were having lunch at the Game Lodge pavilion. The governor was also in attendance. Lukas counted 179 bikes and a few more came after that.
On Tuesday we took a chance it wouldn't be to crazy out and went to Hill City to ride the 1880's steam train. It travels to Keystone and back. You can spend time in Keystone though we chose an immediate return. It was a nice ride and we saw deer, turkey and some marmots.
So we are down to the last week of work here. We will be sad to leave what has turned out to be a great adventure for us.
