We tried something this year that we had never really done before, a long summer vacation. We planned to go to Mount Rushmore, Church history sites in Nebraska, Missouri, and Illinois, and then to the Mall of America in Minnesota. Our trip lasted 14 days and we drove 3400 miles. We had a wonderful time together. We bought a trailer to pull so we wouldn't have to get motels or camp out. It worked really well for us.
We left on June 24th and drove to Mt. Rushmore. We got there just in time to watch the evening lighting. We have been there before and really love the evening lighting. It is a powerful presentation about freedom and the things that our Nation should stand for. It is always a neat experience to see the lights come on the mountain.
