The many colors of Badlands National Park were spectacular and unexpected. It’s truly a must see.

We love South Dakota and can't wait to return for a longer visit.

We got up at 4:00 a.m. and drove an hour from the Joshua Tree South BLM to the Cholla Cactus Garden in Joshua Tree National Park to watch the sunrise. There were about a half dozen other like-minded people there. We all stood in silence as the rising sun slowly lit up the spiny thorns on the cactus.

We will be talking about this sunrise for a very long time.

“When you’re here, you’re halfway there.” Halfway between Chicago and Santa Monica on Route 66. And when you’re here, have some pie because it’s the best.

But don’t do what we did and arrive on Monday. They’re closed on Monday.

The Skydance Bridge over I-40 in Oklahoma City is stunning at night. The design was inspired by the Oklahoma state bird, the scissor-tailed flycatcher.
