We started out day with a drive to Mount Rushmore. We enjoyed our last "big mountain" (as Reed calls them) views as we left Sheridan, WY. At one point, the view looked right out of the Sound of Music with green rolling hills rimmed with snow-capped peaks. It made me burst into "The hills are alive...." Reed found this quite comical so I had to sing a few more songs in my best Julie Andrews voice. He just kept saying "What you sing Mommy?"
On the way ...
... Then.... they turned the lights on the memorial. It was great.
The next day started out with clear blue sky's and about 80. We went back and spent quite a bit of time walking around the memorial and walking along the Presidents Trail. I happened to look over and saw a Nanny and kid goat. They were not 6 feet away. Later on down the trail I spotted a Billy sitting on a BFR in ...
... t as unpleasant as it sounds. After leaving, we headed towards the East entrance of Yellowstone, driving in the pitch dark. It was easier said than done - often when rounding a corner you came across a whole herd of elk on the road. As cute as it was, the thought of hitting one was somewhat terrifying.
After driving through Buffalo Bill State Park, we decided to stop in Cody, Wyoming for breakfast. It was quite a nice little town with real cowboys and ...
... you had to eat sterile tape worms! Yuck - definitely not worth it!
As we are driving west again on Route 90, we keep seeing advertisements for the Corn Palace. When it was time to switch drivers, we were right at the exit for the Corn Palace so we decided to check it out. It is an actual arena where high school and college basketball are played, concerts and other types of events are held. It's claim to fame and ...
... we entered the Memorial area, we approached a walkway lined with state flags, with the faces of the Presidents framed in the distance. The sight of Mount Rushmore, much closer now, suddenly made me shake, and as I said to Brandy and Gerrit, "I'm actually shaking at the sight", I felt an intense rush of emotion and my eyes filled with tears.

Fabulous little cabin in the woods that lives up to its description. Secluded and quiet. Got a wonderfully warm welcome from Joyce who didn't bat an eyelid when she found out I was gluten-intolerant and whipped up the most amazing gluten-free breakfasts. Would LOVE to come back, but stay longer next time.
