Our journey took us through Western Nebraska. The Great Plains were just starting to green up. It was a nice hike up to the top of Scotts Bluff National Monument.
A cute little Rattlesnake greeted us on the trail. He very politely shook his rattles to let us know he was there.
You know you’ve been together a long time when you start to look like siblings.
There were quite a few hours of relaxing driving through peaceful scenery.
Custer State Park in South Dakota is famous for the 1300 to 1400 head of buffalo roaming about freely.
This guy is having a nice deep stretch after a nap.
Guess who has right of way.
Junior was giving us the teenage EYE!!!
We took a hike that supposedly paralleled the stream. I think we waded across that sucker 20 times.
Of course we had to stop by Mount Rushmore National Monument. The carving started in 1927 and was finished in 1941.
For my family and friends not in the USA. The old codgers (Presidents) are George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Theodore Roosevelt and Abraham Lincoln and of course Dean and Rose. I think we would fit nicely in the granite chunk to the left of George.
We had a great time visiting the area in 1991 with our nippers. This is a pic of the Badlands National Park.
We finished up in Rapid City renewing our drivers licenses. We are South Dakotans for another five years.
