As many of the best laid plans go the trip didn't go exactly as we had planned. The slow laid-back trip with lots of stops for photos ended up much more rushed than we had hoped, but was still plenty of fun. And the obligatory stops such as the world's only corn palace, Wall Drug and Mount Rushmore were made along I-90 in South Dakota.
We did get to spend a little bit of extra time in the Badlands of South Dakota. This area, along with the Black Hills, deserved more time than we were able to give it. It was beautiful to spend time there nonetheless.
