Mickelson Rail Trail (MRT) Day 3: Hill City to Custer

Tonight we were headed for the South Blockade Lake campground where we would be spending the next two nights. Watching the weather, things were not looking too good for us — heavy rain and thunderstorms.

After a group discussion over lunch at the Coyote Sage Cafe about the weather (it was raining pretty good at this point), we decided to check out our options. No cabin at Custer was available for the nigh. But, Big Ker found us an amazing place to stay in the Custer, the Shady Rest Motel Cabins.

 Our hostess was amazing...she had put us in a "room" which actually had a kitchen and three sleeping areas...and she had turned on the heat to warm it up for us. We were thrilled to be inside getting hot showers while it poured rain outside.

And the next morning, the sun came out!

Total mileage for the day: 13.7 miles
