Driving home from Canada this year I had the bright idea that we go back by Mt. Rushmore again .Because everyone knows that that's a direct shot from Manitoba to the Gulf Coast of Alabama, right?? NOT!! Driving from our town to Manitoba, Canada was 1900 miles. Driving home through Rapid City, SD was 2269! That's almost 400 miles out of our way. Honestly...it was so worth it and I'd do it all over again.
Now we had to drive all the was across South Dakota (it's a really wide state, in case you haven't noticed). It was such a beautiful drive. I enjoyed every minute of it. We went on through Iowa, Missouri, a little bit of Kansas and back into Missouri again to stop. The next morning we drove on into one of our favorite southern states, Arkansas. We cannot possibly drive through Arkansas without driving by the Duggar's house. They are on our favorite reality show. After stopping there we were energized to drive home. (we arrived about 1:00am).
We saw a whole lot of this beautiful country that God has created, felt His protection and watched as He performed a miracle...just to love on us! One long drive turned into a trip of a lifetime!
