OMG!! today was the best! As we were driving to Murdo, we just passed the central time zone lol so I couldn't tell you what time it was lol the car

clock is still on Vancouver time and my phone is an hour later and passing into central time adds an hour LOL but it was in the early evening. I saw

a sign that said scenic road into the Badlands, I asked Nat if we could drive through there, she pulls in and drives for a bit. We got closer and could

see the peaks of the Badlands, OMG OMG I told Nat we goin in 😊 We only had about $ 75 American. I said I'll use my credit card to get a room, we

are doing this 😊 and man oh man it was worth it. lol We could use that pass for a week but we are traveling through. I started filming as soon as

we got through the gates, we paid $15. We were about one third of the way down when my battery light came on. OMG Nooooooooooo but I had

bought one of thoes charges you plug into the lighter slot, Nat stopped the car and I dug out the charger and continued to film. We are usually

joking and laughing but we were so quiet, we were in awe of the great beauty. The colours were awesome. We drove 45 minutes through them

and turn around and came back so I could film the other side. 😊 The sun was setting when we were headed back. The colour changed on the

peaks, the sky was pinkish orange. LOL I' ll let the pictures speak for themselves 😉

Nat has gone into Murdo to buy a battery, when we got to the Best Western, she shut the car off and it wouldn't start but we had a room 😊

also she needs to exchange some money 😊 We need travel therapy (shopping)

We headed toward Chicago today, we are only going to spend a night there, stopping in Seattle has put us a day behind 😊 But it's all good 😊

Love you and see ya soon 😊
