Starting in Spearfish SD

Mount Rushmore National Memorial

The first glimpse of Mount Rushmore

Custer State Park
"The Needles" Highway

Yikes! Reminiscent of the Drive Through Tree. This happened at about 1 mph!


The Needles


Oelrichs SD

That's Nebraska on the horizon


State #23 for this trip.
New State #12 for this car, and the last one:
It has now been through ALL of the contiguous 48 States!

Ironically, Nebraska was also the last of the 48 States for the 97 C5 that preceded this car!

(Below is the crossing into Nebraska in 2002)
