We had a different approach on the way home than we did on the way out. On the way out, we powered through, doing majority of the driving in one day. On the way home, we decided to break the drive in half. The halfway marker was Rapid City, which meant we were stopping by Mount Rushmore!
Both Travis and I have been to Mount Rushmore before, but it’s fun to go as an adult because you take more information in. Theodore Roosevelt is my favorite president, so I enjoyed reading all the information about him. We also got there in time to see them retire the flag for the day. They invite all current and retired military to the stage.
What a great trip! Travis and I love to visit national parks because Mother Nature can make things way prettier than any human can. The world has so much to offer, so why not start in our own backyards? We are hoping to get to Zion, Yosemite, and the Redwoods soon. Alaska is what we hope to make the next big trip! Happy traveling! I’m happy to be home with this little guy for a while!
