Prairie Homestead – historic sodbuster farm sitting forlornly in the Badlands.
There’s hardly a living thing out here except rattlesnakes and prairie dogs.
Upon entering the park, a large sign warns “Prairie Dogs Have Plague” !!
We had lunch at the park restaurant, hoping it would be as swanky as Cary Grant and Eva Marie Saint found it in the Hitchcock movie, but alas it’s just another cafeteria run by Xantera Concessions.
Deadwood is famous for its Gold Rush days, circa 1875, and for where Wild Bill Hickok was killed in Saloon No. 10.
