South Dakota 2008

We return to South Dakota (our last visit was in 2002).  Last time around, we took our "only child" Bailey, our Golden Retriever.  This time we had our two "real" kids, as well as Grandma.  So while it was kind of the same trip, it had an entirely different feel.  Poor Bailey had to fend for himself in "doggy day care" this time around.

Also, don't miss the Old Time Photos we had done while we were on this trip!

The Badlands National Park


As with last time, the Badlands was our first major stop (besides the Corn Palace, see the other album for that). And just like last time, it was strikingly beautiful and we took lots of pictures.

Laser ShowThe laser show outlined the future carving. At the rate they're going, it might be as close to a finished mountain as we'll ever see in our lifetimes...
