I guess you could say I also lost a third hour, getting to Mount Rushmore. You can only reach it from one direction, and it's about a half hour south of the main highway. So going to Mount Rushmore and then back to the main highway was another hour of lost time that wasn't on my itinerary.
Not too far from Mount Rushmore is a free, drive-through zoo area called Bear Country. I have 47 pictures from this place, and here are five of them.
Don't you hate it when you're driving, and a bear blocks the road ahead of you?
That bear is dangerous close to my car.
