Home Sweet Home Again

We traveled 4,481 miles across Texas, New Mexico, Utah, Idaho, Wyoming, South Dakota, Nebraska, Kansas, Oklahoma, and back down through east Texas. Along the way we also touched Arizona, Colorado, and stayed 3 nights in Montana. We played on the plaza in Santa Fe, camped by mountains in Moab, Utah and saw Bear Lake from a mountain top. We saw almost everything along the Grand Route through Yellowstone and even dropped down to get a better look at the Grand Tetons. We drove along the Wind River Canyon in Wyoming and spent the night in Caspar. We camped on the mountain by Mt. Rushmore and drove through part of the Badlands. We saw miles and miles of cornfields in Nebraska and spent the night in Ogallala. We saw more corn in Kansas and even got close to a thunderstorm that had us clicking our heels and saying there is no place like home. We went through Injun country, that is now called Oklahoma, and saw all the fine casinos that seem to be the only productive thing in the state. We had a wonderful evening in Mt. Pleasant where we just glad to be back in Texas. All I can say is that the pictures can't do justice to the sights we saw and if you have never been to any of these places, then you should find a way because we didn't see anything or place we regretted going to.
