Road Trip 2010: Kansas, South Dakota, Colorado

This week has finally come. The first leg of our many trips of this year. On Thursday we are leaving for Dodge City, Kansas to see two of our very good friends, Cody and Kelsey, get married. But we aren’t going alone. Our other wonderful friends, BJ and Melissa Rice are driving with us to share the drive and explore the western states! The night of the wedding we are then trekking north to stay at Andy’s grandparent’s ranch in Winner, South Dakota. We will be riding horses, floating down the Niobrara River, hiding from wild turkeys, and relaxing. Then we’ll go a little west to Rapid City and see Mt. Rushmore and stay in a cabin. Yes, a cabin! I am so glad I got camping in tents off the table! I love nature, but that’s a little too close for me. I like walls. And last, but not least, we are heading back south to go to Castle Rock, Colorado to stay with Melissa’s college roomate and her husband, Danielle and Jason, who just recently moved there.

And we are doing all this in a span of 10 days.

Roadtrips are so fun! I love all the little stops along the way, the snacks to nibble on, the people we see, and God’s glorious creation all around. I am so excited!! I’ll hopefully be posting along the way so stay tuned!

    I also would be tickled with the Cabin, being as there should be a mattress to rest your weary body on. A mattress is as good as a wall in my book.

    Your dad will be proud. Hope you enjoy the Niobrara. I floated different sections of it many different times as a kid. You may already have, but do some research on it. Two ecosystems meet there that aren’t supposed to be that close to each other.

    Wow! I wonder if you’ll see any rocks? I know how you love them so! You might have to get out of the car though…
