Today we took a ride to Hot Springs, SD.
There is a site there where in 1974,
Phil Anderson, while excavating for a housing development,
unearthed some fossils.
Those fossils turned out to be tusks & bones of mammoths.
This one was one of the almost complete set
of mammoth they unearthed.
The whole place is pretty incredible. I've always been
interested in paleontology and archaeology.
I even got to help with a demonstration ;-)
They told us that you can sign up to help with the dig.
The organization works for 6 weeks in June-July and
always needs volunteers. I would love to do that!
Another thing for the RV to-do list.
After we were finished looking at bones...
we of course had to eat :-)
We found a place in Custer, called
The Buglin' Bull
Great food...and my Dad ordered a local
beer..which he said was thick enough to
drink with a straw ;-)
He cracks me up!
