Hermosa, SD (Click on Pictures to Enlarge)
Wow, it's hard to believe that we've been in South Dakota for 20 days now. First it was Sioux Falls, followed by Rapid City (actually Hermosa). I'll have to say that we have enjoyed every day here. We've seen a lot of things, but now have an idea of so many more things we'd like to see the next time we return.
Heartland RV Campground for the past 12 days, I've never even talked about it or shown any pictures. Heartland RV Campground is really nothing fancy as campgrounds go. They have gravel roads and sites, but for the most part, all sites are level and the utilities work well.
The campground accepts Passport America, so the rates were very good for the area. Probably the nicest feature of the campground is the convenient location to Custer State Park, Mt. Rushmore, Crazy Horse Monument, and the NPS' Jewel and Wind Caves.
Can anyone identify this recreational vehicle? I had never seen one before. The model is a Vixen 21TD. (The answer later in this blog.)
Cairns". On trails they are usually erected to mark trails.
Sorry, I almost forgot to give the answer to the earlier question about identifying the Vixen 21TD. I won't go into the whole history of the vehicle, but if you go to Wikipedia it's an interesting read. This vehicle was an RV made by the Vixen Motor Company between 1986-1989. There were only a total of 587 Vixens ever made. The one pictured above is a 1986 model. We never saw anyone near the Vixen during our entire stay, but it had recently been plugged in to power, so I can't tell you anything about this particular rig. Still, it was fun to view an RV I'd never seen before.
Next stop, Gillette, WY for the Escapees Escapade.
