This morning, after a quick stop at Starbucks for my caramel macchiato, we hit the road for South Dakota.
Wyoming was more cows,
and long stretches of nothing-ness.
We made a quick stop at Dairy Queen for lunch.
I also had the chicken finger basket. . .
Then, we went to the Jewel Cave Tour in Custer, SD.
Then, went to Mount Rushmore. Scott had been there as a kid, but I had never been. Pretty cool.
Checked into our hotel room in Keystone. Super small town – probably really busy during summer but not during winter/spring. There was no fast food places and only 3 other family-type restaurants. We went for a four mile run checking out the town, with a view of Mount Rushmore (pretty cool!) and perused the dinner options.
We picked one. . .
It turned out pretty well. Scott had buffalo chili and I got the “special” – hawaiian meatballs with salad bar. Scott helped me eat my meatballs and I helped him with his biscuit. We are a good team.
We also took turns playing the IQ game – Scott won with just one peg left.
Now, we are chilling in the king size bed at our hotel and having dessert. Cashew turtles from a candy shop in Colorado. Yummy!
Back to Mankato tomorrow. We both don’t have to work until Thursday, but we are looking forward to having a day to chill at home!
