The Wonders are Bottomless

We started our day in the Jewel Caves here in SD, a short tour just to get a sense of the wonder of this marvel of nature.  There are over 150 miles of cave down there.
Looking down – it’s a good thing there are lights:017
Looking up (we were 250 feet below ground level:004
We were very happy for stairs and platforms:019

Coming back into the sunlight, we headed for Deadwood, enjoying yet another type of terrain:

Deadwood is the town where Wild Bill Hickock and Calamity Jane are buried.  We visited their gravesites:035

After lunch in a park, we explored the Deadwood City of today:058

Lots of saloons and gambling halls – apparently just as busy and popular now as it was then.
On our way ‘home’ we found a quilt shop:

More about that in another post.
Happy wonderment!  Blessings, Peg

  1. Now what were the chances of coming across a quilt shop out there? Are you sure you didn't do a Google search before you left home?
    I can hear it now..."let's go down this street honey and see what is there...oh look a quilt shop" C'mon, tell the truth.

  3. Now that's a place I might consider driving to to see. Looks so interesting. I must have been a Wild West pioneer in a past life... LOL
