Badlands National Park was an unusual place. Miles of prairie and these amazing rock formations all formed by erosion. The rock stands out in stark contrast to the flat prairie land surrounding it.

We had never been to Mount Rushmore before and weren't sure what to expect.  It is truly hard to describe how BIG this monument blasted  into the side of a mountain is. We were really impressed.  Especially when you think about the limited technology (dynamite, chisels and people) they had to sculpt back then. Amazing. 

Travelogue Page 09/27/2003 - 09/29/2003 A picture Black Hills National Forest and Wind Cave National Park

We drove east across Wyoming to Black Hills National Forest in South Dakota. The terrain was very different, more heavy forest with undergrowth.  We were going to stay on the western side of the Black Hills, but there were a lot of folks there and the campgrounds were crowded, so we continued on southeast into the forest.
