Hey Blog Buddies,
We're back from our trip out West, and while I really enjoyed the vacation, it's good to be back at home. We have a "thing" for National Parks, and we visited a lot of them on this trip. Our 15 days in a nutshell:
Old Faithful, Yellowstone National Park
Grand Teton National Park
A real, live moose on his way to lunch in (yes) Moose, Wyoming-Grand Teton
Bison: They've definitely made a comeback in Wyoming and South Dakota!
Devil's Tower National Monument, Wyoming
Little Bighorn Battlefield National Monument,Crow Agency, Montana
(The scenery wasn't spectacular but the ranger program was fantastic!)
Mt. Rushmore, Keystone, South Dakota
Crazy Horse Memorial, near Custer, South Dakota
Wind Cave National Park, near Hot Springs, South Dakota
Didn't get ANY good photos there, unfortunately.
Badlands National Park, South Dakota
Minuteman Missile National Historic Site
(Inside the facility where they would have launched the missile.
DH thought that this was one of the trip highlights.
It's a guy thing.)
This was one of the longest, most ambitious trips we've taken. We had originally planned to visit only Yellowstone and The Grand Tetons, and did everything else on the spur of the moment.
It was a great trip.
Hope all of your journeys are wonderful.
Have a good weekend,
and thanks for visiting.
