e Knew it was going to be a long day's drive and it was.  Although we stopped here and there for breaks and meals, we were mainly sitting on the bus looking out or sleeping.  Sleeping is so easy on the bus, it seems to rock some of us to sleep in seconds  and you need to fight sleep off if you are to appreciate where and what you are driving through.  Between the start and finish cities it was basically grasslands and rolling hills, in some ways similar to parts of Australia, except for the deer that we passed along the way.  Unfortunately there were no real historical or striking vistas to see along the way and the bus stops were just that, bus stops. 
  Map:  Denver to Rapid City  -  around 635km
