Being a compendium of thoughts as we drive and drive and....
We had a longish drive today through four states: Colorado, Wyoming, Nebraska, and South Dakota. Laura has now been to 49 states; Ed 48.
Rather than just tagging Nebraska, we stopped at Scottsbluff National Monument. The bluff was a major landmark on three western migration trails - the Oregon, California, Mormon Trails all went through here. The view from the bluff across the plains was impressive.
Next stop was Carhenge. Words can’t describe it
We will be staying in Custer in the heart of the Black Hills for the next few days. Hope to see more charismatic mega fauna.

Take a tour of Jewel Cave with lanterns, as I recall from 50 years ago. It's not as grand as Carlsbad, but more romantic--kind of like the one where Tom Sawyer and Becky Thatcher got lost.

Sounds great but, unfortunately, at this time of year they don’t offer it. We are about a month early.
