Today we head to Deadwood first. We all go at the same time to start the walking “poker run”. I start with a King, but then quit. I take pictures of Rick driving Tin Lizzie under the city sign and then by the “Tin Lizzie” casino.
We then go up to the Mt. Moriah Cemetery. There are 3,627 burials here, including Wild Bill Hickok and Calamity Jane.

We leave town after huge ice cream cones and head for the scenic route to Hill City.
We go through pretty hills with aspen and pine trees with green meadows, running streams and a lot of deer. We even come across two wild turkeys, but I haven’t found any big horn sheep yet. We decide to go to the Wonderland Cave and take their tour.

We finish off the day by going to dinner at the Alpine restaurant. What a meal, a fantastic bacon wrapped filet mignon steak with baked potato, bread, and a 1/4 wedge salad for only $11.95! Now that is the way to end the day.
