This is the old Highway 16 that parallels the Interstate and that brings you into town.
This is the house I grew up in. It once had a very big front porch that extended across the whole front. My dad planted all the trees. My friend Joyce, who bought the house many years after my family left, added the fancy front door, shutters and brick steps.
The The time zone change between Central and Mountain Time Zones that used to run right down the middle of our main street has been moved to the county line, fifteen miles to the west.
As soon as you leave Murdo, heading west, start looking for the signs for Petrified Gardens and Wall Drug. You won’t be able to overlook them!
Nor will you be able to overlook the beautiful badlands. Veer off the Interstate for a better view. I’m including a few shots from the Interstate.
If you don’t know about Wall Drug, read about it HERE
So, that’s the rest of the story!!! I’m now back in Sheridan after driving thirty hours on the road–1758 miles in 5 days. Great visits with my nieces and older sister, old school friends in three different towns, and my cousins Sharon and Lisa in a fourth town…Talk about a whirlwind tour!!! Rain most of the day for two days–today a rain of insects that almost completely covered the grill and windshield of the car…Always a new thrill in what looks like tame country. Thanks for following along! And thanks, Patti, for doing most of the driving and planning!
