RV Adventure: Stops 6 & 7.

Custer State Park, South Dakota
The Badlands, South Dakota

Hello, Dear Reader!
Let us rejoice in the fact that it’s a new day: a new day to savor all that is this journey we call life.
‘Cuz the earth spins on.
After visiting with The Fam for a week or so, we packed up The Sweet-Baby Berkshire and began the long journey home.
But rather than heading straight east, we first traveled north.
With the AC working overtime, we drove straight through Wyoming. It really was scenic, I tell you. When we first crossed over from Colorado, there were buffalo grazing in the fields, as if on cue. They looked stunning, even from a distance.
And South Dakota greeted us with what felt like record high temperatures. We set up camp for a quick overnight at Custer State Park, and after Toddler Snap explored the playground for a bit, we called it an early night and settled in for an episode of The Terror. (Because, yes. It’s my new favorite thing in life. So good.)
Then the next morning was a fairly quick jaunt to Mount Rushmore!
It was neat.
We of course took the obligatory selfie photos. And I bought a postcard of the workers who constructed the massive sculpture.
Then it was off to the town of Wall, South Dakota. We visited the iconic Wall Drug Store, and ate a simple but tasty lunch in their café. It was pretty crowded, so we kept our distance as much as possible, then hit the highway for The Badlands.
And, wow. What a scene, man.
This is literally where we camped.
Not bad, huh?
Anyway, we’ve been on the road (well, away from home) for two and a half weeks now.
We’re missing the kitties—and all of the little niceties that make our house a haven—but we’re truly having a grand old time.
I mean, how lucky are we that we have this RV? (How lucky are we that we can afford diesel for this beast!)
Because time is so very precious, Dear Reader.
And I aim to spend it on what matters.
Family. Friends. Travel.
Art: Photos, paintings, and jewelry. Music! Cinema! And of course, fiction!
Real, delicious food.
Real people. Real stories.
Real life, yo.
There is still so much to do and see.

Stay tuned for more SnapDragon adventures from the road!
