Day Four of our Western Tour turned out to be grueling. We got up early and headed over the Big Horn Mountains, an incredible, gorgeous ride. You can see how majestic and vast this country is. We made a stop at the Medicine Wheel, a National historical landmark, between Lovell and Sheridan, WY, created by the Native people about 700 years ago. The site is still used for sacred ceremonies.
We got to our room at the Super 8 in Hill City and ordered a pizza. I tried to keep my crankiness under control, took two ibuprofen, and it was lights out until morning. The bikers staying out here are a tired lot. I didn’t hear anything until about 6:00 am. Bikers like to get up early and ride while it’s still cool. Besides, the Hills in the morning are breathtaking.
We spent Day Five in Sturgis. And, today, we’re up early and heading towards home. We’re on the Flop as the Biker Chef described it. The way out is the Flip.
For the most part, Bikers are a friendly lot. They’re a community of travelers who like a challenge, enjoy the ride, and share stories.
Be safe. Journey on, and Happy Trails!
