On the whole trip, this was the only dog I got to love on - a carved wooden dog.
Major withdrawals not seeing any dogs! (On the plus side, the black top I wore to my mom's funeral had no dog hair on it. What a concept.)
I did get to love on some horses though...
...and my sis loved on my cousin's barn kitty. (Not me though. Allergies!)
On the way there we zoomed along not really stopping much, but on the way back we took 3 days to drive home so we could see a few things.
First stop was Badlands National Park. It was really cool. My pics didn't do it justice. (Should have taken my big camera! I only had my phone.)
We also went to Wall Drug, So Dak, which is a tourist-trap mall with lots of shops, but it has some goofy/fun things you can do - and it also has fabulous donuts.
One of the goofy things you can do is pose with the elusive (and mythical) jackalope (a jackrabbit with antelope horns).
You can also take a photo with a giant rabbit. I don't know why there's a giant rabbit, but if you do pose with it, I suggest making rabbit ears, of course.
Our last fun stop was Devil's Tower National Monument, which was gorgeous!
We walked around it and saw this guy (the tiny white speck) climbing it. No, thank you!
Of course, one of the best things about road trips is the road snacks!
Except for all the time spent sitting in the car, it was a good trip!
Tune in next week for a different kind of dog post!
How about you... do you enjoy a good road trip? Have you been on one lately?
