Friday was a travel day, across Wisconsin & Minnesota...saw lots of farms & cows! Rolled into the Badlands at sunset...wow! Found a campsite with a great view, check out the photos Chloe took from our campsite of the horses! Next morning we got up @ 7am and hiked the "Notch Trail". 1 3/4 mile trail throught a canyon, up a step wood ladder to some great views. The rangers warn that it's not the anyone with a fear of heights & to watch out for the drop-offs...they aint joking! Got back on the road to Mt. Rushmore, did you know that it was named after a slick New York lawyer trying to get land rights to the gold in the Black Hills and asked the guide what the name of the mountain was called and the guide replied it didn't have one so guess what the guy's name was? It was cool but it looks so much bigger in the photos :) After Mt Rushmore we jumped back into the car and now we are driving to Cody Wyoming. Tomorrow we meet up with Chloe's Uncle Jeff to explore Yellowstone.
