I’m so glad that you guys were excited over my announcement in yesterday‘s post! Having your support is awesome and so very much appreciated. Now that we all know where I am, I’m so, so excited to see what adventures I have out here.
Although, just getting here was an adventure in itself. My dad, my dog and I in a car from Tuesday-Saturday with as much stuff as I could possibly bring. Atticus was a little crowded in the back seat, but he made it work.
But fortunately, my dad and I managed to not only survive the trip, but really, really enjoy it.
We took a few detours – some on purpose (Mount Rushmore, Yellowstone National Park) and some not so much. But we made it, and that’s the important thing, right?
So, prepare to look at a lot of pictures from our trip.
Our first quick detour was at Falls Park in Sioux City, South Dakota.
Where Atticus and I proceeded to run around and climb things because nature and not being in the car anymore!
After that detour, we kept driving and stopped for the night in Keystone, South Dakota.
Which was picturesque and adorable and made me feel like I was in an old Western movie.
And then the following morning was Mount Rushmore:
My dad encouraged that picture, by the way.
Although a few of the attractions around were closed for the season, I’m glad we went when we did – it was still nice enough outside but we didn’t have to deal with a ton of tourists.
Friday definitely had the best adventure though. Yellowstone National Park!
Ya. It’s kinda pretty there.
WE SAW BEARS.
We got out of the car to get that shot, but that’s ok because there were other people closer than us so if the bears decided we were getting too close they would go after them first (a second bear came out from the trees after we got that picture).
Yup, I need to go back there.
And Saturday of course, we finished the trek to Canmore. I could show you pictures I’ve taken so far, but believe me – you’ll see a lot of those in the coming weeks.
So that’s all for me today – have a good one!
