Oh, and... another car trouble thing from yesterday... I... accidentally didn't close something right... and now the power cord for the electricity basically got destroyed because it was dragging on the road. I felt pretty bad, but my dad told me he almost did it too.
Day 5: Faces and Badlands
Well we woke up this morning, at around 5 AM, mostly because of this interesting storm. Unfortunately because we were in the pop up trailer we probably didn't have the best protection we could have had for a storm of such magnitude. Of course after mentioning it to a fellow camper he had said "it blew a bit." Yeah, it "blew a bit" enough for my parents to have to hold on to some of the walls to prevent it from bursting open, and enough to bend some of the metal rods holding the protective awning.
After some breakfast in a nice Cafe' with a waitress named little J who said "you bet" as opposed to "sure" (once again, Sarah Palin anybody?) we were off again. We stopped at a scenic overlook with an awesome path which had partially eroded because of the storm and a sign warning against poisonous snakes, but when I didn't see anything when I went on the path, although I did see a cute little rabbit.
Then the badlands. Oh my goodness, the badlands. Simply spectacular. No way to describe. I'm sure the grand canyon will also be intense, but I really liked the badlands. One of the people at the gift shop asked if we wanted what sounded like a "behg" but I'm sure to her it sounded as if she were simply saying "bag."
Oh yeah, I also saw those four faces. Mount Hurryalot or something right?
