Updated with photos!
Darly & I went on a vacation road trip with our friends Marsi & K (K is Marsi's dd who is a month older than Darly...they are very good friends.) We left a few days early for our trip to South Dakota. We arrived on Saturday and spent what was left of the day just relaxing. Here's some pictures of the dogs:
On Sunday we went to Church with Marsi's parents - Renae & Dan (doesn't Marsi's mom have a great name?) :D After Church we watched a movie on DVD and then went to the Mammoth Site in Hot Springs, SD. Oh yeah, we are staying with Marsi's parents. On the way to the Mammoth Site we were able to see a bunch of wild life in the Black Hills National Forest...we saw Buffalo, Pronghorns & Deer. We decided that we really didn't need to go through Custer State Park to do the Wildlife loop.
On Monday we went to Mt Rushmore and then to Crazy Horse monument to see the laser light show.
On Tuesday we went to Bear Country, Jewel Cave and back to Crazy Horse (thank goodness Marsi's parents can get us in for free) to see to museum that we missed on Monday.
On Wednesday we went to Bear Mountain Fire Lookout and to a local mine to look for rocks. Dan thought the property was on Forestry property but we learned when the owners showed up that it was privately owned. The owners were very nice and allowed us to keep the rocks we picked up (just quartz & mica) but told us the property would soon be posted to prevent liability issues. I felt so bad for the owners that they have to face liability if someone gets hurt trespassing on their property. We also drove through Custer State Park
We'll be driving back home on Thursday. I'll be updating this post with links and pictures after we return.
