We would be remiss to trip-it across the United States without visiting a few of the national parks, even though it was cold and raining we endured the elements and visited both the Badlands National Park and Mount Rushmore National Park located in the Black Hills of South Dakota.

It was well worth the detour; dispute the weather we enjoyed an hour long drive through the Badlands. Even though we skipped the welcome center where there was a video, exhibits and artifacts (I just saw this on their website) we managed to get numerous pictures and videos. I would have loved to bike and hike all day in this park…oh well, maybe someday we will come back.

A couple of hours west was Mount Rushmore National Park…

Boy it was cold and drizzling! In our flip flops, shorts and t-shirts we walked from our vehicle to the monument area. I watched kids and adults alike stare at us…we were the two fools from Florida that didn’t pack any heavy clothes for their summer travels. Thank goodness for the gift shop where we bought sweaters and rain jackets…it was a lifesaver.

Tips (things that surprised us):

  • Each park changed admission $10-$15 (cash only at Mount Rushmore) (The Badlands- credit card & cash only, no checks)
  • It was COLD (40-50 degrees in June)

    I would like to save this particular post to my personal system, perhaps there is an easy method rather than duplicating it straight into word and saving it as a txt document?
