Summer Travels

Amber and I just returned from our annual trip to Minnesota for the Bayfront Blues Festival.  Instead of our usual flying we actually made the drive this time in the scenic fashion, meaning instead of taking I-80 across to I-35 we got to see some of the country’s great national parks, forests and monuments.  I’m hoping I can get myself to write up a bunch of posts about the various places we stopped when I’m home and have access to all of the pictures from our adventure but here are the highlights.

Bridger-Teton National Forest
Grand Teton National Park
Theodore Roosevelt National Park
The Corn Palace
Wall Drug
Mt. Rushmore
Windcave National Park
Some things we’ll do again (Bridger-Teton NF, Theodore Roosevelt National Park) some things we wont (Yellowstone in summer).  Overall it was a killer trip and I’m sad to be back but looking forward to planning another trip to better appreciate some of the great sites that we didn’t have time to fully enjoy.
