This trip took a lot of driving! Done all by Tim, I might have driven for an hour. I definitely think we could have used more time (12 days), but then maybe we would’ve just crammed in more stuff to do. Heading out West was great because we kept gaining time, but we forgot about how we would lose time on our way back. We saw some beautiful country though! It’s a happy reminder about how spectacular this country is even in a time of strangeness. Nature prevails! If only we could all just think about the beauty of the land and learn how to appreciate it and respect it and allow it to bring us together.

Our first night in South Dakota. I forgot about the Sturgis rally when I made this reservation. Motorcycles everywhere is an understatement, fortunately we weren’t staying long. We had some slightly rowdy neighbors for a moment but I think they went to sleep before us!
We woke up at 3:30 in the morning to drive across Wyoming to try to get a campsite at Grand Tetons National Park. I guess we had too many pit stops because when we got there at one p.m everything was full because it’s first come first served, which I knew! We were shoved down the road to a campsite outside of the park that was full as well, but he had an overflow spot that we took.

Our campsite when we got there a little after one p.m. The wind was so fierce that night it felt like a giant hand came down from the sky and just shook our tent back and forth
Our campsite later that evening. We weren’t the only ones that didn’t get a spot in the Tetons. I don’t understand why they don’t do reservations!
