2000 mile trip

We planned on driving for 3-4 days from Minnesota to California, taking our time, stopping at different places.
Our first place – The one and only Corn Palace, Michelle, South Dakota. The entire “painting” is done with corn. The design changes every year. It kinda made me hungry just to look at it.

Wall Drug Store is THE tourist attraction in the middle of South Dakota. I am willing to bet nobody has NOT stopped at the place when driving by hundreds of roadside billboards leading to it. They have a pretty good selection of jackalope

A trip through South Dakota, of course, can’t be complete without the pose in front of the presidents.

We entered Wyoming at dusk, right into the eye of a nasty snow storm!

We were very glad to get out of the fierce snow storm in Wyoming, especially after being stuck in the accident caused traffic jam for around four hours!
The Great Salt Lake in Utah isn’t quite salty as the Dead Sea but it is just as beautiful. It is, however, much more lively, providing habitats for millions of birds, waterfowl and brine shrimp.
“You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled underfoot.” (Matthew 5:13)

Meeting the at the Bonneville Salt Flats, Utah, before it set.
While taking this picture of Jonathan, I kept looking at the sky and mumbled to myself – “Whomever painted the sky is a pretty good artist, knowing everything about composition and complementary colors. He is so good that he probably never uses Photoshop!” I can’t wait until I meet Him someday with all my buddies.

We cut through Lake Tahoe, even though it took a little longer, because it’s there. The largest alpine lake in North America is like those beautiful women in the bible that certain men could not keep their eyes (sometimes hands) off of! smile emoticon We just could not look away.
The first snowfall of the year made itself at home, filling in spaces where many others have been, year after year.
It’s GREAT to refresh my soul with such magnificence!
