We are on our 3 week vacation here. In Portland Oregon tonight. I've seen so many things and couldn't possibly pick my favorite so far! We always enjoy SD! Went to Wounded Knee this time and spent several hours there. Had amazing time with an Indian family as they told us about the uprising there in 1973 and also about the 1890 massacre. We spent a couple days in SD and then went on to MT. Spent a day with the Crow Indians at Little Big Horn. 3 of them took us on tour of the battle grounds and then invited us to attend their annual rodeo part of their pow wow. It was the best rodeo we ever attended! We continued through the state and went to Glacier NP before heading on to WA. Did a fast run through Northern Cascades NP and then took the ferry over to the Olympic NP area. Did Hurricane Ridge and then spent the night at Sol Duc. We could of spent a week there! Next afternoon went on to Hoh Rain forest and then spent the night in Tacoma area. Visited Mt Rainier & Mt St Helen's before stopping in Portland OR. Saw so much already and still have 2 more weeks to go!
Just checking in while I have a few minutes!
