Old Faithful was true to it nature, spewing steam and evoking wonder2I was impressed by the wildlife roaming freely in the area especially early in the morning.

The Road to Minneapolis: South Dakota

Day 4 of roadtrip going to South Dakota from Wyoming via Highway 14 (Bighorn Scenic Byway) The highway was tortuous but was worth it. We saw a herd of sheep grazing on the hillsides. We went to see Mt. Rushmore where Isabella gushed and taught me a few parts about the four famous presidents.

South Dakota’s Wall Drug was also a fun place to visit.

The Road to Minneapolis: Minnesota

The land of 10,000 lakes. My firstborn’s birthplace. It was sweet seeing old friends, old and familiar faces and places.

The Mall of America, the Cathedral of St. Paul, Target Field and the Minneapolis Sculpture Garden brought back a lot of memories.

The Road to Minneapolis: Kansas and Missouri

From Minnesota to Kansas via I-70W. It took us 7 hours to reach Kans where we spent a great time enjoying home-cooked

meals with relatives. We also visited neighboring state Missouri to check Missouri 1855; a ‘village’ which reflects a typical

village life in mid 19th century Missouri.

The Road to Minneapolis: Arches, Canyonlands and Monument Valley

On our back to California we went southwest of Utah to visit Moab. Utah is such an amazing place. It is definitely one of

those ‘worth returning to places’. There are so many things to do- hike, kayah, bike etc. We celebrated Jacob’s birthday

on a 4×4 Jeep guided tour at Hell’s Revenge where it rained and we were granted an awesome view of a rainbow on

the petrified dunes. Vince and I had fun catching lightning at the Arches National Park. It was one AWESOME experience.

It was one great adventure, but as Dorothy would say it;

There’s no place like Home.

Explore. Dream. Discover.
