Don’t Worry, be happy! I am posting only a SMALL selection of our trip to:
Sioux Falls, Badlands, Mt. Rushmore, Needles Highway, Keystone, Billings, Yellowstone, Grand Tetons, Salt Lake City, The Salt Falts, Rocky Mountain National Park, Boulder and whatever else we see before we head home. These are only the first few days!
All vacations are better with Nutella! Sioux Falls Park, picnicing.
See, our little black rain cloud did come with us on vacation after all!
This is for YOU, dad!!
Jesse James Memorial. First Train Robbery right here!
Wind Turbines. They have a lazy elegance, tumbling slowly and not quite synchronized.
After breakfast every morning, we need to get rid of the evidence of our mass-murder of insects. A white car is a sorry sight in SD… There have been some gross and blood fronts of cars!
Sioux Falls, South Dakota….A very lovely downtown water park area….would that the James in Richmond could realize even a portion of this feeling of community.
Fog. Much, heavy pea fog, for hours and hours and hours.
Mitchell’s Corn Palace! Yes, the facade is decorated in CORN. And other grains. Yearly, they change out the corn and the theme of the art.
One of our constant companions, Timmy’s FAVORITE sign of all. (BTW. South Dakota? It’s under construction.)
Walk the Dinosaur!
Field of sunflowers.
Badlands Park. WOW, is really the only word that I can find. Amazing, astonishing, incredible, unbelievable, unearthly, WOW.
The most common form of wildlife in the badlands. These little buggers are EVERYWHERE.
Oh, you wanted REAL animals?
Ok, how about HIM?
Long Pronged Deer. Yes, I AM that close…there were a dozen grazing at an overlook….
So, there you have it. The first three days, in a few photos (mostly unedited, and what I DID do was on the laptop, and i am not thrilled with the screen)…
Hope you enjoyed!
