Rally Pink Dinosaur
you leave the Sturgis Rally the road gets to the Cheyenne
River you'll see a ranch on the left, and shortly
a pink dinosaur. Or, at least it used to be a pink
dinosaur. Maybe it has changed color by now.
Pinky has always been a local landmark. And it proved
one thing - many people who live in no-man's land
have a sense of humor.
Edge of Nowhere at the Sturgis Rally
the town of Scenic you've reached the edge of something.
Just exactly what, you can decide as you gaze out
across the Badlands by the jail on the main street.
At this juncture you'll be heading south towards Pine
Ridge. The Badlands in this area aren't visited much.
They're secluded and they're beautiful, especially
as the sun angles along the rims and cliffs near sunrise
and sunset. The visions change continuously.
the Moon at the Sturgis Rally
of the White River going through the reservation are
strikingly remote and beautiful. It will be unlike
other things you've seen at the Sturgis Rally.
Moon-like cliffs jut into the sky as the literally
white clay-laden river pours down through valleys.
the Place to Run out of Gas at the Sturgis Rally
sure to have plenty of gas as you make your way through
this and other parts of western South Dakota. There
won't be that many cars coming by to hitchhike a ride
If possible, send a night in this area, or in Badlands
National Park. It's a Western experience. Coyotes
howl. Stars glitter. And the Badlands walls shimmer
under the moonlight. A fitting end to the Sturgis
Somber and Reflective End to the Sturgis Rally 2002
