Kathy and Dale's Mount Rushmore (etc) trip travel blog


Left for the trip Wed around 12:30. We are currently in Rochester MN. The weather is great. It is cool and dry. We can sleep with the windows open.

Today we made it thru Chicago. We left really early and still did not beat rush hour. We were going thru the center of town about 6:30am. What its like an hour later is too horrible to imagine. Everything was really well marked thou-we didn't make one wrong turn.

We crossed into the Central time zone today so we are an hour behind most of you. We crossed the Mississippi at La Crosse. That is the 3rd city we've watched the Miss river from-Memphis, Vicksburg, and now La Crosse.

No good pictures yet, but tomorrow we arrive in Sioux Falls and there may be good water fall pictures. We plan to visit Palasades state park on Sun and that is suppose to be very dramatic.

If we have good wifi I'll be adding pictures soon. (If we don't have good wifi I may just go buy a new phone and become my own hot spot-we've had quite a lot of really bad, really slow wifi until today-the tiny campground in the middle of nowhere Minnesota with only 4 tv channels (2 of them christian channels and one the local channed that has been showing a local parade for 3 hours now) has great wifi. Go figure). (They need cable to get the 4 channels).
