Westward Bound!

On the way to California we elected to go across South Dakota in order to visit a national monument in western Nebraska.

We stayed in the Range Country Lodging in Murdo, SD. The motel and the town had a real western feel — lots of historical info on cattle ranching and the branding of cattle. Most of wall space in the motel was covered with old photos of early settlers. I particularly liked a photo of barbed wire– who knew there was such a variety.

Our lone meal was dinner at the Rusty Spur Saloon and Restaurant. The place was loaded with memorabilia of the “old west”. They even had a Wells Fargo Stagecoach!

My companion and I ate a cheeseburger — the onion rings and fries were delish.

Later I learned that my South Dakota born and raised daughter-in-law was an infrequent visitor to this humble burg. She has warm memories of Murdo. Who knew? On to Nebraska.
