Just got back from a highly successful scouting mission for the Great Plains Trail in South Dakota and North Dakota, the details of which I will describe in a later post highlighting a few sections.
Below are some of the highlights from Custer National Forest, South Dakota:

The sticker on the truck begins to gather dust
On the GPT! A two track “road” through the grass. I biked this section and got lost a few times following trails that eventually petered out.
Now that’s some Great Plains dust!
