This past Wednesday I was dozing off in my chair mid-afternoon & woke to an odd droning noise. Looked out the back window & discovered a tractor run going down Hwy 16A so of course I grabbed my camera & headed for the road for a few quick shots. Now I have to tell you, being a city girl, I know NOTHING about tractors! But I do think they look pretty cool with their canopies, flags & adorned riders cruising along about 12 mph! And what a friendly bunch of folks, waving & smiling for the camera :)

The final tractor stopped for a short chat & let me know they would all be parked at the Super 8 parking lot if I wanted to get a few pics, which of course I did. They would be leaving the following morning for a ride to Mt Rushmore & of course a jaunt through Custer State Park once again. Wonder what the buffalo & deer think of these strange rides invading their territory? LOL

I learned that about 60 tractors participated in today's run & they expected about 80 by the following morning. I'd love to go for a ride on any one of them, especially through the park. How fun would that be? Anyway, if you are a tractor lover you'll probably like today's photo intensive post. If not, we'll see you tomorrow with part 4 of 4 Mile Old West Town. Have a great day!
