Summer of Fun Part 2


 

Hi all-

Another photo blog – this time of our trip to South Dakota.  We had a blast – it’s so beautiful in the Black Hills.  I promise to get back to writing in a few days.  I also will have another photo blog at the end of the September, to wrap up the Summer of Fun, to include pictures from Run or Dye, The Door County Century and the Zumba-thon in Lambeau Field!

Enjoy!

Wall Drug

First Stop – Wall Drug! Dave found a shoulder to nap on after our long drive.

Notice the cool colors – some places were really desolate, and others were so vibrant.

Antler Rock. We named it that – not it’s official name. 🙂

Ginormous Antler Rock. Dave is dwarfed between the trees.

Yes, I took a picture of the rocks. Aren’t they cool?
