After leaving the Badlands, we drove to Mount Rushmore. Here you can see Jim (black cowboy hat he bought at Wall Drug) and Maggie before the Avenue of Flags that leads to the monument.

After Iowa, we spent one night in Sioux Falls, SD en route to the Badlands. We met a former runner of mine from my cross country coaching days for dinner and then visited the Falls. They were an impressive sight!
We made it back to the hotel in time for a swim at the indoor water park before bed!
We arrived at the Badlands mid-day and were able to set up our 9 person tent that Aunt Sue and Uncle Matt gave us. It is huge! We were able to set up Maggie's pack n' play in the tent and still have plenty of room for the rest of us to fit comfortably.
This is the view on the other side of Jim and the kids. He was adamant that we wouldn't lose a child there!

We went on an epic summer trip in July. It started with a two night stay with Jim's Uncle Mike in Iowa. He lives on the bluffs above the Mississippi River. We arrived on July 3rd, just in time to celebrate Independence Day!
What a difference a year makes!
