it was a quick trip but I packd in the miles. so I feel I have a good overview of that part of the state. for me the highlight was Mt Rushmore. we all know what it looks like but until you've seen it walkd under it you can't realize the power of the work. monumental sculpture indeed.
my host Michael Fish kindly took me across the Wyoming border. another state crossd off the list. I know I know. I didn't even spend the nite. I plan on doing the parks of Wyoming one day. promise. but technically I have been in the state. so that leaves but 3: Idaho which I'll visit next month then Montana & North Dakota perhaps next year.
