Our trip to Arizona

We stayed at our first hotel in Lakeville, Minnesota. Not too far from home but we left and that is what counts. We sure thought we would be leaving earlier in the day but we found that if we looked for something else that needed to be done, we would find it every time. So we left late and at the end of the day... mostly just to actually leave and be done.

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.
The truck won't be here until Thursday, August 5. We will be staying at the hotel here until then.
