One of our first stops was the Archway across I-80 in Kearney, Nebraska. In Wyoming we stopped at Lincoln’s Bust, the highest spot on that highway. We arrived in Jackson, Wyoming and appreciated an afternoon exploring the town. Their park has antler arches at the entrance. That evening we went to a covered wagon cookout with entertainment. Some of our guest were included in the show.
Our guests were very impressed with the scenery in Grand Teton National Park. Early morning sun shining on the peaks made for many gorgeous pictures. Yellowstone National Park came next. Our step on guide showed us the awesome Yellowstone Falls and Old Faithful along with many other beautiful sites.
Our jammer trip over Going-to-the-Sun road in Glacier National Park was remarkable. The old buses we rode in had no top so we had to use blankets to keep warm. The visit to Little Big Horn Battlefield was fascinating. The ranger who did our talk should be on Broadway. He was a real actor and entertainer. We visited Mt Rushmore and Crazy Horse memorials. The guests really enjoyed the train ride through the beautiful Black Hills.
We really enjoyed the time at Badlands National Park. The scenery is so completely different from back home. And we had fun at Prairie Homestead, which showed how sod houses were built and the first pioneers lived on the prairie. There were white prairie dogs there, too. On our way through Minnesota, we stopped at the Jolly Green Giant statue for pictures. This is where he was “born.” The Wisconsin Dells were much more than we expected. Really beautiful. Our final lunch together at Paul Bunyan’s Lumberjack Restaurant was really filling. I think they thought we worked in the woods all day. It was a lovely trip.
