Pictures from Vacation Day 2

OK, I will start posting some pictures from each day of our vacation. If you a friend of mine on Facebook, you may have seen some of these already. I already posted a couple pics from Day 1 earlier(when all we really did was drive). Here are some photos from DAY 2 of our trip.

You see tons of billboards for Wall Drug in South Dakota. We counted 86 of them along I-90 on the east side of Wall, heading west. This was one of my favorites.

Downtown Deadwood, SD

Wild Bill Hickok's grave marker in Mt. Moriah Cemetery

Kids are allowed to be in the casinos in Deadwood so B1 and B2 got to watch us play. They particularly liked it when we played the "Deal or No Deal" machines (penny slots) because we would ask for their input on which cases to pick!

The original Saloon #10, where Wild Bill Hickok was shot in the head and killed during a card game on August 2, 1876.

B1 and B2 with some street characters who had reenacted a shootout.

B1 got to participate in a reenactment of Wild Bill's shooting. She was one of the "other" card players in the game.

Smiling for the camera.....

What's in that shot glass?

"Wild Bill" has now joined the game!

And Wild Bill has now been shot! Brittany's character had to yell, "Don't shoot me, Jack!" Jack McCall was the name of the shooter and you can see him running down the hall in the back of the picture.
