I found out long ago
It's a long way down the holiday road
Jack be nimble, Jack be quick
Take a ride on the West Coast kick
I'm not sure what inspired us to drive an additional day out West
on our yearly National Lampoon vacation, but I am glad we did.
This year's trip was almost 4,500 miles, From NC to MN and out to SD.
Some highlights ...
Lots of fun playing in the lake, catching minnows and enjoying sparklers.
There was a lot of flooding across ND.
We were pretty lucky to get across in some places.
Even trains had their share or flood related headaches.
Beautiful Buttes of ND.
Our favorite ...
Belle Fourche, SD is the geographical center of the Nation.
And of course you couldn't miss those giant faces carved into a mountain.
Awe inspiring to say the least.
