At least I think we're in Kansas...
We've had a great trip so far. The US of A is an awesome place.
We've been so impressed by the natural beauty.
The monuments to daring deeds.
Of course, we've had some mishaps.
And some donkeys in the road. :)
Some peaceful glens.
(South Dakota, you're so beautiful! I had no idea.)
Custer State Park
Some amber waves of grain.
(And corn, and soybeans, and sorghum.)
Some pioneer cabins.
(I was sooo tempted to put those redwork shams in my purse on the way out of that museum!!)
But I was good...
Some great old houses.
Some interesting modes of transportation.
Some beautiful rivers.
(The Des Moines River in Iowa. This was the view from our campsite.)
A Harvest Festival.
A barge on the Mississippi carrying corn down river.
A Folkart Festival in Hannibal, Missouri.
Mark Twain's boyhood home.
A few adorable shops that I couldn't pass up.
(Thank you for stopping sweetie!)
Some gorgeous sunrises and sunsets.
(Over a Home Depot parking lot in Nebraska.)
We tried to stop along the way at farm stands and small hometown
cafes whenever we could. So fun!
We really do live in a wonderful country. We've flown over it a few times. I'm so glad we've had this opportunity to go and
see some of it for ourselves. We're headed toward home and should be there in a few days.
I'm looking forward to playing with a few grandbabies when I get there.
As Dorothy would say "There's no place like home."
