Hey people, hope you are all well.
The holiday season is upon us, and the year is running (literally) to an end.
So, as part of reflecting and taking into stock the past year(s) and events, I have decided to share photos of some my family's road trips.
Road trips have somewhat become my family's annual tradition . We travel by road to different places in the United States either for a family event or to just sight-see and visit friends.
The trip to Mount Rushmore National Memorial, in Keystone SD, was part of our road trip during Spring-break 2016.
We drove up from Missouri to Minnesota, spent the night at a friend's place, then drove into Canada through North Dakota, stopped briefly in Fargo to sight-see, then drove to Regina, a city in Saskatchewan, Canada, to see some friends. In case you are wondering, the drive took more than 15 hours from MN to Regina.☺
Our stop at the Mount Rushmore National Memorial, was on our way back home. It was a rather short visit because of the inclement weather the day we arrived there (last week of March), so we did not get to explore as much as we wanted.
Anyway, here are some photos from the visit:
A wall with the names of individuals and organizations that contributed towards Mount Rushmore Memorial National Park project.
