Welcome to Sturgis (Day 2)

DSCF6778 Photo101

Last summer I knocked an item off my bucket list by attended the 75th annual Motorcycle Rally in Sturgis, South Dakota.  Mind you, I am not a rider. My husband’s best friend, however, wanted to go one last time, so we tagged along in our Ford F150 pickup truck, with camping gear in the back. This picture tells the whole story. During the first few weeks of August, bikers from all over the world converged on this little town, with a normal population of just over 6,000. By the time it was over, the official count swelled to over 750,000.

I took this picture at the top of a tower, looking down the main street.

    1. we heard from several people that the week before and after are not nearly as crowded. It actually made me nervous with so many bikes on the road. I don’t think I want to go back that week, but would love to go back and spend more time in that beautiful country.
