Got up this morning and headed to the Custer trading post and cafe for breakfast and of course I had to do some shopping in the gift shop. Good food and friendly people and lots of goodies in the shop, then on to the Little Bighorn National monunment. What a place, they have a national cementary there and even without that, once you go thru the information center and view the exhibits, going outside on the driving and walking trails is really eirry. It's almost like you can feel and hear the ghosts here. It was such a horrible battle and terrible loss of life all around and as you look over the areas you can picture it happening, the hills the indians hid behind and the last stand hill and all the white tombstones placed where people fell and now they are placing red stones where the indians fell. you can feel the hair on your arms stand up when you look over the hill where the indian village was, etc. Wish we had a lot more time here, so much history to learn and learn from. We will be back to this area again. It was early afternoon before we got back to camp and hooked up to head to North Dakota. We plan on stopping at Don & Colleen's Red Rock Ranch at Richardton,N.Dakota. They have set up a pheasant hunting ranch and we were anxious to see what they have done. WOW .They have done a great job. It is a fantastic view from the front porch and if we had time we could really enjoy just kicking back here. Not what you would expect for a hunting camp, but certainly just what I would expect from these two- Great to have relatives like these as we will stop at their home by Detroit Lakes,Mn. to camp a couple nights and catch up with other relatives in the area before heading to our summer camp(Camp Seegebarth) at Hinckley,MN.
