Almost lost vacation- South Dakota 2004

 Now Found!!!! 

It was 101 degrees when we landed in
Rapid City, SD but the next day, it snowed....
 We love to visit the National Parks of our Great Country! Many years ago, 2004 actually, we took a family vacation to South Dakota. We made a great big circle tour and saw lots of wonderful landmarks, wildlife and Native Amercian settlements and treasures. While I have never forgotten that trip, it was only recently that I came across the pictures that I thought were long lost with a computer crash from years ago. To my great relief, I found them in a totally unrelated file..Yipee!
Here are some I'd like to share

in front of Mount Rushmore in the Black Hills

Blue Belle Lodge /Custer State Park

Florida's marker ~ Mount Rushmore

Where the Buffalo roam...Custer State Park, SD

Jellystone Park in SD

Mammoth site near Wall, SD
  The landscape, scenery and wildlife were incredible ......
Ready for a chuckwagon ride..

Circle View Ranch in the Badlands

An awesome view aross the terrain
 ...the history, amazing..the wide open spaces, unbelieveable!

I highly recommend South Dakota as an amazing family vacation. If you have questions about what to see, where to go, etc., please feel free to contact me or leave a comment...

Wow! What a fantastic vacation, Audrey! So glad you were able to recover those pictures and I'm sure you'll treasure those memories forever. I'd love to visit Mount Rushmore and that area, some day as well. Thanks for sharing.

Thank you Maria!! I do hope you get to go there someday. You'll neer forget it. We'd like to go to Zion National and Monument National parks someday. We went to Yellow stone when our son was just under 2...we'll have to go again sometime since he doesn't remember it.....
