We are traveling through the West and having a fantastic trip. We started out in Sioux Falls. It was so beautiful to see; there we also visited some relatives. My mother is a twin and we were able to visit with my mother’s twin. It was wonderful to see them together. We saw the city including a buffalo ranch, the falls there, and a wonderful butterfly garden. It was so fantastic to see the area. Lars loved taking pictures there. I will share them as soon as I can get them uploaded. Our next big stop was Dead Wood. We stayed in a rustic but character filled hotel. The hotel had so many of the original doors and some of the wood work. It was clean with high ceilings. We spent two nights there and got our laundry done up while Steve was able to tour the museums there and he loved that. Our next stop was The Bad Lands. Oh my talk about wonder! There are no words to describe what it is like to step out of the car into another land. The rock structures, the pits, the cliffs all brought a lump to my throat and it was hard to take it all in. We are having such a great time and have seen so much more I will continue to update.
