arrived Sidney NE at 3:30 pm Central
I've screwed up the mileage figures so I can't tell how many miles I traveled today. Damn Toyota has a grey background with (non-bright) white numbers on their dash. I can read them a little better with the headlights on, but can't read a damn thing without the lights on. So I left out one digit the last two times I read my total mileage, and I have nothing to subtract from. When I get fuel tomorrow I might be able to add up all those smaller mileages. I don't really care by now. I have 3 odometers, and I leave the middle one just keep adding the miles to the end of the trip, so I'll eventually know.
I spent hours last night searching for a room near Badlands N.P., but everything online was showing no vacancy. I might call a couple places tomorrow and see in they have an available room
There isn't much in Sydney, NE at this time of year, and I had to get a room at America's Best Value Inn - very nice but with those damn interior corridors. I love the courtyard style motels where you can park right in front of your room - I run in and out with stuff all evening, and again in the morning.
The scenery was ok today but nothing that made me want to stop and take a picture. I had a few deer run across the road in front of me early this morning, and that kept me pretty alert!
Here are some of the remaining photos from Dinosaur N.P. Some are pretty much alike at first glance, but I'm including them for my grandson, Liam. (Click to enlarge)
The picture above is incredible to see - the vertebrae of the dino and the discs!
The next two are taken just inside Colorado - as I mentioned yesterday I wanted to capture the magnificent red color, but the distance and the sunlight prevented it from turning out like I wanted it to.
No photos taken today. If I do get to the Badlands tomorrow I hope I can get some good photos. But I need to find a room first.
