We headed off with fair weather from Sheridan, Wyoming. The land was mostly flat with some slight rolling hills. I mentioned yesterday that we were wondering how the Indians could keep track of where they were going because one hill looks like the next. I snapped some pictures as we traveled so you can see the flatness. I found most of Wyoming to look like this. The most fun thing about this area is that one of our sons served a church mission in much of the area that we traveled today. We finally got to see where he served. I remember back to his letters and tried to remember his experiences in each of these towns.
The Mt. Rushmore area has tons of stuff for a family to do but everything looked like it was going to cost you. We did stop at a little village - stores and souvenirs etc. The sun came out while we were there. We thought about going back up to the mountain but we needed to get on with our trip. By the way, when we paid for our ticket, the gal said we could use it the rest of the year. I thought one of my kids might want to use it but later I found that it was non transferable and that she had written part of our car license on the ticket to make it that way...ugh!
This park was so much fun. I hated to leave but on we must go. We traveled over the same flat country as I started with on this day. Tonight we are in Mitchell, Wyoming. We are going to check out the Corn Palace first thing tomorrow then who knows where we will go. We haven't yet decided. Such fun!
