daughter's graduation party.
LeClaire, Iowa is a short distance up the Mississippi and we always stop by and visit the site of "American Pickers." They have two vans now and this is the older one parked at the site. We traveled one day with friends to the Amana Colonies and had a delightful lunch at the famous "Ox Yoke Inn."
After a week in our home community we traveled to Milwaukee for my grandson's graduation party. Great time at both events!
We then traveled West on I-90 through Wisconsin, Minnesota, and South Dakota. The drive across SD was beautiful and we visited the Corn Palace, the famous Wall Drug, Badlands, Mt. Rushmore, and Crazy Horse. We spent all afternoon driving through the Badlands and it was a great experience. You can see those photos here. Besides family and friends, Mt. Rushmore was the highlight of the trip! It's a sight that every American should enjoy.
Thanks to our hosts in all three cities!
After three weeks it was time to head home and we always love seeing this sign and clear skies at the New Mexico-Arizona border.
