Well, yesterday was our longest day on the road. 12 hours, 650miles, 2 bad restaurant stops, 100's of wind "mules", 3 hours of whining (by the 6yr old), 101 signs for Wall Drug-home made doughnuts and 5cent coffee(but when we got there FINALLY it was just closing-aaahh man), 40minutes of lost time because the stupid GPS got us lost, and 1 small rustic cabin.
Corn Palace, not worth the stop.
The long and winding road.....or in this case just the long straight never ending road.....
Our Cabin in the at Hill City KOA.
Thank God for new days.
Today we woke up to blue skies and an amazing view of the black hills from the porch of our cabin. And our cabin didnt look so rustic in the light of the new day. We are stayin at a KOA right near Mt Rushmore/HillCity. It is really family friendly, pools, free mini golf- Cece played 12 games! splash park, etc etc.
We did drag the kids away to go see the Crazy Horse Monument. Crazy Horse was really amazing, not sure what we were expecting, but it was really worth stopping at. This guy Korczak Ziolkowski-now thats a mouth full- was asked by the Lakota Indians to carve a monument to their chief, this man dedicated his whole life to it and now his 10 children and wife have taken over the project that has been going on for 60+years. Kinda cool............
