With a day like today, I'm thrilled to be thinking of vacation. A friend of mine and I decided we wanted to do something/go somewhere we'd never been. So...we planned on throwing a few darts at a map to see where we would travel. In the more realistic sense, we decided to see where an airplane could take us that we could afford. Our destination--which was a shock to both of us--is South Dakota. We'll probably be celebrating the 4th (of July) with four very famous men at Mt. Rushmore. Folks say their fireworks are quite spectacular.
We are outdoorsy folk, so we will hike the Black Hills Forest, explore the Badlands, and find anything else that tempts our fancy. I'm excited because I can now cross South Dakota off my list of places I've never been. I just wish the 4th of July would get here. I need that plane ride!
