  13. Sticky: Poll: All quiet at present.

    Generally speaking it looks quite settled up on the pass at the moment although there are a few light snow flurries in the weather forecast. This is the current scene from the Sentinel Webcam that...

    As Donna mentioned, how much time do you have for the trip in total and will it be a round trip or one way ? On the way out you could consider Badlands NP, Mt Rushmore and other attractions around...

    Good to know.

    That's great to read !! Of course safety is paramount but extra time will at least make the journey bearable and perhaps to some extent, enjoyable.

    Safe travels !

    I like the concept of a solo traveller travelling with the security of a group, yet remaining independant on the days events. Not quite so keen on 'Bodies in a barrel' though !! I'm not surprised...
