Road Trip: Day 1, South Dakota
Yesterday Mélanie and I begin a 3 week road trip taking us across the western half of the United States. Beginning in Kansas City we are going as far north as Seattle, through the Badlands, Black Hills, across the Rockies, into Yellowstone and the Tetons, and up through Boise. From Seattle we head down hitting up Portland, the Northern Pacific Coast, San Francisco and Yosemite. From there we head to make our money back in Vegas and then marvel at the Grand Canyon and Zion before booking it to KC, with a quick stop in the Denver area.
Be prepared for too many posts of long stretches of road with a low horizon and a lot of sky, as well as all the famous national monuments and parks you have already seen a million pictures of. To start off with, here is all you need to know about eastern South Dakota.
