Hi all- After 10 hours of driving home yesterday I must comment on the fact that my body does not handle road trips like it used to. Who’d have thought that my body’s adaptability would decline so much between 25 and 28! A word to the young- enjoy it while you can! That being said, here’s a recap of some of the wonderful things I learned in South Dakota.
1. Prarie Dogs are adorable (see picture below)
2. I enjoy looking at rock formations more than hiking on top of them… (see picture two)
3. Not one single person died in the making of Mount Rushmore (isn’t that unbelievable!!)
4. For your next SoDak vacation, Custer State Park has fabulously cheap accomodations right by Mount Rushmore. We stayed at a cabin adjacent to Sylvan Lake Lodge for $135 a night! What a steal, huh? We were within a stone’s throw of a beautiful lake area and only 15 minutes from Mount Rushmore.
