Last day in Denver

Buffalo Ridge Camp Resort
Custer, SD

Tuesday George and I took a drive around the lake.
The weather cooperated with some nice views of the mountain snow.

There were some ominous clouds we were keeping an eye on..

We caught site of a few coyotes in the prairie grass..

We were invited over to George's sister in law's brother's house
in Sedalia, which was just 45 minutes away.

They have a lovely home in the hills,
with fantastic views!

 They are great hosts,
serving us some wine with cheese and crackers,
sushi, and then a wonderful dinner.

Susan, Gabe, Mitch and Renee, George

Susan and Gabe
At the moment Susan's sister Renee and her husband Mitch
are living with them until Mitch gets a new job.
Gabe is George's SIL Connie's brother,
and Renee is Susan's sister.
We feel like part of the family!

Wednesday we left Aurora around 10 am,
and had a nice ride to Custer, about 355 miles.

Marlene, the campground manager met us at the gate.
The campground isn't open until the 27th.
She let us pick one of 4 sites as our own for the summer.
We decided on site #118,
as there is no one behind us but woods,
and deer grazing there.
I'll get more pictures soon.

We met Marlene and her husband Dan at Amazon,
and when she told us that she manages this campground
for the summer, we jumped aboard!

The next few weeks will see us helping get the grounds ready.
It is under new ownership,
and Warner Brothers is making them get rid of 
all things Flintstone.
The new look will be teepees,and a western theme.
You can find more about it at the new website..

We look forward to exploring this area again!


  1. That looks like a really nice campground! I bookmarked it for our trip to SD next summer. :)

    Hope you guys have a great season there!

  2. It looks like a very nice RV park! Enjoy your summer!

  3. Looks like a really beautiful park. We loved Custer very much! Enjoy your summer!

  4. I stayed there with my parents many, many, many years ago. I think we stayed there because I (and my Dad) was a really big Flintstones fan. I remember it as a great place, with never ending replays of The Flinstones in the little theater there.

    Glad you had safe travels and now you can settle in for a few months. Enjoy your summer!

  5. What beautiful views from the home in the hills. I couldn't quite follow the relationships but sounds like only 2 degrees of separation. LOL! Really nice that they let you pick your own site for the summer. I suspect you are really going to like it there.

  6. Looks like a great place for the summer. Enjoy!

  7. You picked a great place for the summer. Love the Black Hills and the Wildlife Loop in Custer State Park.

  8. Looking forward to reading about your experience there. The park looks great.

  9. Along with Sherry above I got confused! But often family is family no matter the relationship.
