We decided to not take the shortest route but to do some sight-seeing on the way. We headed to South Dakota to see the Corn Palace, Wall Drug, Mount Rushmore, and Crazy Horse. We also swung through Custer, SD to see my mom's painted buffalo. She is an amazing artist!
After staying the night in South Dakota, we headed through Wyoming and down across Colorado into New Mexico. We stayed in Albequerque and had the most wonderful breakfast there. We pulled into our hotel in Glendale, Arizona at about supper time on Sunday, August 1, 2010.
In all we drove almost 2,000 miles to get here.
