I’m on vacation, but I planned ahead. Presuming that we stay on track, we’ll be seeing a lot of cool things–here’s what I hope to see today.
Oh, today is a big long day of attractions and activities–the first of two ambitious dawn to dusk tourista fantasticas as we drive from Mitchell, South Dakota to the doorstep of Yellowstone in 48 hours and attempt to see a whole lotta America in between.
First up, the Badlands–a scenic drive through the park with a few short hikes thrown in.
And yes, I’m going to drag my fat ass up these steps, just to prove to myself that I not an old, used-up bag of skin and lard.
Then I’ll reward myself with a treat from the decadent land of tourista dreams…WALL DRUG.
That isn’t me on the rabbit, obviously. I have hair.
And we’re not done yet. Our final destination of the day is Mount Rushmore, which isn’t nearly the dull thing I always expected it was. The first time I went, I expected to be bored, but it is oddly engaging.
