The midwest is boring. There are no mountains to view. Hot springs and geysers are nowhere to be found. Can’t find any faces carved out of rock on a mountain either. But if you pile into a minivan and drive thousands of miles, you can see these things for yourself.
And that is what we did. Me, my wife, my 2 kids, and my in-laws. 9 days and 3100 miles.
We saw Mount Rushmore:
Yellowstone National Park:
Grand Teton Nation Park:
And finally, Wall Drug:
It was simply amazing to behold such varied and wonderful features. It was a great combination of God’s handiwork (Yellowstone and Grand Tetons) and man’s workmanship (Mt. Rushmore). I didn’t even mention the Badlands!
For the month of September, I am going to highlight each place I have pictured here. So if you feel up to a road trip, follow me and let’s go!
