Hard to believe, but the Needles Highway was even more impressive than the Iron Mountain road!

Time to fire up the GoPro (though it's going to take me a while to edit videos)


Like the Iron Mountain road the Needles Highway is very narrow, has lots of sharp hairpin turns, low tunnels and the road has very little traffic. The first of many tunnels that were blasted through solid granite back in the 1920's-


Over the shoulder shot of the tunnel we just rode through-


14 miles long, the Needles Highway winds through pine and spruce covered mountains and the amazing granite "needles" for which the area is famous. In this pic you can see the Cathedral Spires off in the distance, a massive collection of rock towers pointed to the heavens.


We stopped here for some water and snacks and to take in the amazing views-


My son took some pictures of me- once again I'm quite impressed by his steady hand-




I regret not bringing more batteries and/or a charging cable for the GoPro. It's getting pretty old and the battery doesn't seem to last much more than an hour. It ran out of juice about this time so from here on I was snapping pics with the Canon while riding. Perhaps not the safest way to ride, but that Beemer pretty much drives itself ;)


Interesting history about the Needles Highway- I'd assumed it was built by the Civilian Conservation Core in the 19030's as part of Franklin D Roosevelt's "New Deal", but I was wrong.

South Dakota Governor Peter Norbeck wanted to simultaneously preserve and provide access to some of the most beautiful regions of the Black Hills. In 1919, he designed the route for the Needles Highway, a road that many engineers deemed impossible to build. Two years and 150,000 pounds of dynamite later, the road was opened to automobiles.


Simply amazing!




I wonder what the purpose of this little "cave" is?


Some steep grades, lots of hairpin turns and blind corners- brilliant!


Approaching another tunnel with blind entrance. One has to remember that this is a two-way road!


You have to be pretty careful and sound your horn before entering a tunnel lest you meet someone else coming the other way-


More twists and turns-




Eventually we arrive at Sylvan Lake- it's early afternoon, pretty hot, Kristhawee decides that it's time for a swim!!

It's a hot day, but the water is COLD!


We swam out to the rock island you see in the picture above. (Remember our mission to re-teach Kristhawee how to swim?)


C'mon in! The water's FINE!


Oh my, underage babe alert


If admiring beautiful girls is a crime, let me be guilty!!


Kristhawee is.... um... doing laundry??


Oh, no, silly me, he's making a weapon!


Ok little dude- let's rumble!


Making friends on the beach- this family, if I recall correctly, was also from Minnesota-


Kristhawee is building a volcano! (Serious work- just look at his face)


We climbed up the rocks next to the beach and you get some nice views of Lake Sylvan-



These would make a nice panorama if I could be arsed to stitch them together ;)




Hike a little further on the rocks and you discover this amazing view that wasn't even visible from the beach-


Even more beautiful with my son in the picture


Father and Son at Sylvan Lake, Custer State Park, Black Hills, South Dakota, USA


Kristhawee's feet are getting tougher!


Having fun scrambling around on the rocks-


We swam some more then quite suddenly black clouds rolled in and we enjoyed a nice afternoon thunderstorm. There was lightening so we took cover.

While we were taking shelter in a little gazebo-like structure in the parking lot a bunch of emergency vehicles showed up along with search and rescue types- apparently an older gentleman had been hiking to the top of Harney Peak (the tallest mountain east of the Rockies) and had collapsed...

It's not a very tough hike, but the pine beetle has killed off most of the trees which means the trail is now very exposed and it was a hot sunny day. Hopefully the gent was just suffering from heat exhaustion and nothing more serious.

We met a single father with two daughters and the younger one was around my son's age. They were getting along great and were kind of playing tag, ducking under the railings of the gazebo when the older daughter misjudged the clearance and ran head first into the concrete rail

She kind of knocked herself out and then came to and had a seizure- I caught her before she hit the ground and the seizure passed very quickly but it was pretty scary and her little sister totally lost it.

Fortunately there were already plenty of medical and emergency personnel on the scene. They checked the girl out and said she was probably ok but that dad ought to take her for an X-ray just to be sure.

Yikes! It's scary how quickly good times can go bad.

I always had that thought in the back of my head on this trip- the "what if" nightmare scenarios of crashing the bike with my son strapped to it. I consider myself a pretty experienced rider, chose one of the safest touring bikes on the planet and didn't take ANY chances but still, no matter how skilled you might be or how much you might prepare, you can never control EVERYTHING.

You never know when a drunk driver might take you out (been there done that) a bison decides to use you as target practice, you blow a tire in a hairpin with no guardrail, etc etc.

Yet on the flip side, LIFE is dangerous. There is RISK in everything we do. I feel like more and more people choose "safety" over common sense, to the point where many people live their lives in fear, obsessed with making everything "safe" and eliminating as much risk as they can and as a result don't really LIVE.

Don't want to go too far off on a tangent, but I've been reading this other thread called "When do you call it quits" (http://advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=819513) and many people there have voiced my feelings of concern and malaise better than I can.

Suffice to say, the ride with my son was epic, perfect, couldn't have gone better, and for that I thank my lucky stars. I hope we can do similar rides in the future and that some day, when he's old enough to ride his own bike that we'll get to ride together. I'm certainly not ready to call it quits and I'm pretty sure my son feels the same way. But if his feelings change maybe we'll do it in a car next time, or rent an RV and bring the whole family along.

Born and raised for his first four years in Thailand he grew up on 2 wheels and learned right away that he NEVER gets on a bike without a helmet, so he found it quite surprising and couldn't understand why SO FEW of the bikers we encountered this summer wore helmets.

I moved to Asia in the late 90's and this is the first big road trip I've done in the US in ~15 years. It seems to me that while I was gone a lot more motorcycles have taken to the roads and that a lot LESS people are wearing helmets... No doubt for the folks living in the US it's been a gradual change, but for me being away for 15 year the sudden and noticeable increase in bare headed bikers was quite striking. What happened?

We encountered these bikes at a gas station somewhere west of Sioux Falls, SD and neither wore helmets or had windscreens.


The result was that one took a big bug/beetle in the face, high on the cheek, just below his fashionably small sunglasses at 75mph and now his eye was so swollen he couldn't see out of it anymore... The folks in the parking lot were trying to help decide what to do. Most were telling him to go to the hospital, but the biker chose to continue on with one good eye, no helmet, no windscreen and the same little sunglasses...

All in the name of what? "Freedom"? Looking "cool"? Being "tough"? I just don't get it... I mean, I AM guilty of occasionally going for a spin without a helmet on, so I'm certainly not in a position to preach. It DOES feel good to cruise around a lake or down a main street with the wind in your hair and nothing over your ears, but cruising on an interstate at 75mph with no windscreen and no helmet is NOT my idea of a good time...

And isn't it just WEIRD that 49 of our 50 States have deemed that splitting traffic on a motorcycle is so dangerous it's illegal, yet riding without a helmet is permitted in some ~19 States?! What's up with that?! I just can't understand the logic or rational, if any behind that contradiction.

Ok ok, sorry, really didn't mean to go on like that, but recounting the story of the little girl knocking herself out just brought it all to a head and it feels good to put pen to paper, so to speak, and try to make sense of it all.

On with the ride!!!




Roads were a bit wet so we took it nice and easy- more tunnels and hairpins


We were soon back in the sun and on our way to Deadwood!

Tony, I am really fascinated with your father and son tour. I can really see that your son loves you and you love him and you both are having the time of your life.

As with taking certain risks to enjoy your life I fully agree as what you have stated above. Also with the helmet issue, the same here in Thailand, so many ride without helmet, I just don't feel safe without it.

Keep on posting...

It's getting late and it's been a long day. I originally was aiming for Spearfish but really don't like riding at dusk when it seems the deer are most active. Also, setting up camp in the dark is no fun- so we decide to hit Deadwood instead and ride the Spearfish Canyon in the morning when we're fresh and rested.


The ride to Lead and Deadwood was quite nice- fast road in good repair with little traffic, long sweeping turns and beautiful scenery along the way-













I've started to experiment with the camera and I'd like to think that some of the shots aren't half bad-










Both Deadwood and Lead are pretty cool old mining towns. Seems they are still mining in Lead, while Deadwood has been pretty much converted over to a full on tourist town.


Spotted a KOA on the road between Deadwood and Lead and stopped there for the night-


Remember how I said earlier that I thought KOA's were more aimed at the RV crowd? Well, this was one of those types. Not a very pleasant location or site, but nthe staff were friendly, it was late, we were tired, and at least they had nice clean bathrooms with hot showers, WiFi and much to my son's delight, a pool and hot tub-


I had spotted a funky looking Pizza joint just up the road in the direction of Lead so we decided to hit that for dinner-

That's MY beer, in case anyone is wondering

These crappy pics must have been taken with my iPhone...

Awesome pizza but a large was way more than we could finish- yippee! Pizza for breakfast!

This place was called "Pizza Lab" and was half restaurant, half "disco"- they had a big dance floor and an actual DJ spinning the records- weird funny place. There was a big group of students from France there that evening and my son had a really good time dancing with them. I may have busted a move or two as well, but thank goodness there are no pictures of that nonsense!

Cheers!


I'm full of pizza and beer- Little guy gets ice cream for desert!


Made it back to our campsite quite late and we both passed out in a flash- yet another full day of fun, adventure and discovery!

What will tomorrow bring???

Good morning from Deadwood, SD!


We rolled over to Sturgis for breakfast and to check out the toys at Sturgis Motorsports-


Sturgis was really really quiet. Guess other than during the big rally not much goes on there?

Kristhawee has never been in a cave, and the Black Hills is full of them. Talked to a number of other travelers about which is best, and was advised that Wind Cave National Park and Jewel Cave National Monument are over run with tourists this time of year and sometimes there are so many people you can't even get in to the caves... Well, that doesn't sound like my idea of a good time But a few people mentioned Wonderland Cave as a cool alternative that is a lot less crowded. Wonderland it is!

It's a short pleasant ride to Nemo and the final mile or so of road is dirt with steep grades and in really rough shape- not my idea of a good time on the big LT, but we made it!


You can only enter the cave with a guide, smart I guess since to this day they still don't know where the cave ends- it's that big! Our guide was a really cutie too, college student working at the cave over her summer holiday.

We grabbed a quick bite to eat before our tour started-


The entrance (not my pic)


Down we go- it was a pretty hot day, but nice and cool in the cave.


No crowds here- It was just us and one other couple! Krsthawee is diggin it!


They leave the lights on which has allowed ferns and moss to grow-


Formations found in Wonderland Cave include Stalactites, Stalagmites, Dogtooth Spar Crystals, Column Formations, Helictites, Lobulites, better known as Popcorn Crystal and frost Crystals. Calcite Lily Pads, Ribbon Stalactites, Boxwork Crystals, Flowstone and many more.



This is a "living" cave, which means that most of the formations are still growing.




Pretty hard to capture the colors with my simple point and shoot camera, but suffice to say, it was quite impressive!




Hands-on geology- touching flowstone


Some quite strange and rare formations-


Kristhawee in Wonderland Cave, Black Hills, South Dakota!


200+ steps to get out


Bye bye Wonderland Cave!

I thought maybe the little guy would be tired from hiking around the cave and climbing all those stairs... Nope! He says "Dad, let's go for a hike!"

Good on ya Kristhawee! I see what looks like an old fire road. Let's see where it goes!




Can't tell you how proud I am of my son- tough yet sweet little 5 year old and so interested in the world around him




Gorgeous afternoon for a hike, loving the solitude and views-




It's getting late and I have no idea where this trail goes- let's turn around-


My son the aspiring naturalist


We got back to camp quite late and I cooked dinner in the dark and we fell into our sleeping bags and were asleep in seconds.


Does life get any better than this?

The Black Hills were fantastic but it was time to press on if we were going to meet our friends at Yellowstone National Park.

My son wanted to go for a swim before we left, so we got on the road rather late.

From our campground in Deadwood to the campground I was aiming for on Highway 16 in the Bighorn Mountains was only about 240 miles.

I figured even with our late departure that it would be a piece of cake.

Riding west from Deadwood and Lead we passed the "Presidents Park".


Then we hit the fantastic Spearfish Canyon Scenic Highway (US 14)


Lots of other bikes out and about-


This is the kind of road that really makes you want to crack the throttle. Have to be careful though- don't really want to get pulled over for speeding with my 5 year old son on the back...


Zoom zoom!


I'm trying to keep it close to the posted speed limit of 45 and there are a lot of sport bikes blasting past me in both directions, so I HOPE that any popo will go after the speeding crotch rockets and ignore the BMW Land Yacht


There's not much of a shoulder and in many places it's thick forest right up to the edge of the road, so I do worry a bit about deer and keep the brakes covered.


Amazing scenery-


The big K1200LT Land Yacht handles these fast sweepers with aplomb and I'm thinking to myself that this wouldn't have been nearly as much fun on a Goldwing...






Would have been nice to stop and take a dip in the Spearfish River, but we'd left camp a bit late and needed to keep going if we were going to reach the Bighorn Mountains by a decent hour.


Wow, what a road!






Little interesting factoid- Spearfish Canyon is where they filmed the final scenes in the epic movie "Dances with Wolves".



Zoomin'





Got stuck briefly behind a tractor... ;)


Dunno if I made them nervous or something, but they almost wiped out on the gentlest of curves...



We reach the end of Spearfish Canyon all too soon, roll through the cute little town of Spearfish, and jump on the I90 Interstate headed West.

It's starting to get a bit warm- It's actually 11:49 am (I haven't adjusted the bike's clock for Mountain Time yet)


Welcome to Wyoming!!!

It's getting hotter and the wind is picking up... I didn't think a big heavy bike like a K1200LT would be affected so much by the wind, but we were getting blown all over the place and I had some white knuckle moments when passing or being passed by large trucks.

Finally, after about 40 or 50 miles of this crazy wind I decided to get off the interstate, so we took the 14/16 which will reconnect with the interstate in Buffalo, WY


It's still very hot-


There is nothing out here except coal mines (couldn't see the actual mines, but could see the huge clouds of black dust that the diggers and dump trucks kick up), gas and oil mines, and cattle-


Miles and miles of nothing-


I was thinking to myself that this would be a terrible place to break down or run into bad weather- we went for many miles without seeing another vehicle or inhabited building.








Looks like we might get wet...


We ride on and on and it's still hot and windy and I know that my little guy must need a break, though he's not complaining.

Finally I spot a little roadside watering hole, like an oasis in a desert-

The Spotted Horse! (As you can see, it's still very very windy!)

We duck inside and it's like a place lost in time- a couple of old timers at one table and what I guess to be a father and son at the bar.

Gotta love the signs above the bar- "Drink till she's cute" and "Life's too short to drink cheap beer" were a couple of my favorites

I ask the barkeep for a glass of water and she tells me, "We don't drink the water around here"...

What a strange and interesting place. Kristhawee took my camera and snapped these pictures-






Kristhawee even got a picture of me with The Duke himself! John Wayne!


Kristhawee and The Duke!


It was a good thing I'd topped off the gas back on the interstate because it was about 70 miles to the first little town (Clearmont) that had a gas station.

After we'd cooled off and chilled out for a while at the Spotted Horse we went back out into the wind and heat to press on to the mountains-

We continue West on US14/16 and it feels like this road will never end...


I start to think maybe we just should have stayed on the interstate...




Then finally, way off in the distance, we spot the Bighorn Mountains!


There's snow up there! Kristhawee is excited!


The road starts to climb and the temperature starts to drop-


Entering Bighorn National Forest!


The road and the views get more interesting-


Dunno about the rest of you, but I'll take forest over plains any day!


US 16 winding through the Bighorn National Forest-





Fantastic road!


Can you see the highway through the trees?







Nice and cool up here!


See the snow?


This is the first snow we've seen on our trip and it's a welcome change after all the heat we had earlier in the day.









Windscreen is getting pretty buggy!


Finally we arrive at Meadowlark Lake and the Lake View campground-

The Lake View campground on Meadowlark Lake in the Bighorn Mountain National Forest is beautiful!


We found a great spot in a tent-only area right next to the lake. Kristhawee helped me set up the tent-

This was a really cool spot- we were actually on a little island- we had to cross a couple small streams to get to this spot, and if you look closely at the picture above you can see a steam just behind the tent.

We got the tent set up just in time too because a small thunderstorm rolled in quite suddenly. No worries- we'll just chill in the tent until the rain passes.


Father and son


My son came up with this funny game that he calls the "Bison game" where we push against each other and see who has the strongest head. Believe it or not he wins a lot!


The rain has stopped, it's getting late, and the temperature is dropping fast-


I have to say a BIG BIG THANK YOU to the campground hosts, Don and Barb-


We arrived quite a bit later than I'd planned and I didn't have much in the way of food.

When I went to register and pay for the camp spot I asked Don where would be the nearest place to buy some food and he gave me a funny look and said probably the closest place would be all the way down in Ten Sleep, 20 miles away... Don's wife gave me a disapproving look and stated the obvious, "You don't have any food?!"

I was pretty beat and the idea of jumping back on the bike for a 40 mile grocery run did not sound like my idea of a good time, but gotta do what ya gotta do.

I went back to tell Kristhawee that we'd need to get back on the bike and we were just getting ready to go when Don came down in his truck with a big bag of food! Wow! He told us that another family had had to leave unexpectedly when one of their kids crashed on a bicycle and that they'd given all their extra food to Don and Barb as they left.

Don and Barb were kind enough to pass it along to us. Can't thank you enough for your kindness Don and Barb!!

I tell you, you meet the nicest people when you travel!

There was (and still is) a total fire ban in the Black Hills so we hadn't had a camp fire since our first night at Lake Vermillion. Don said it was no problem to have a fire here, so off we went to scavenge some wood. Seems my boy loves fire just as much as I do. I was a total pyro as a kid and I think my kid is a chip off the old block




We enjoyed hotdogs for dinner, courtesy of Don and Barb, and I had everything we needed to make smores for desert-


Full and looking a bit sleepy


One more smore before bed-


Our warm dry tent awaits-


Good night!!
