Rolling into summer

Here we are earlier this week in the beautiful green hills of northwest South Dakota! We arrived home today from our drive that started in Kansas and took us through Nebraska, South Dakota, North Dakota, Montana, Idaho and finally, Washington. That's our handy rental moving truck you see here, carrying some items from my family home (I spent a week there before starting the drive).

To go the route we wanted, most of the time we were on small roads/highways, not the interstate. Be sure, there will be more posts about some of the highlights. We had fun and found some great spots off the beaten path.
Above, you can see our yellow Penske truck parked among the RVs at Mt. Rushmore! A moving truck might not be the usual vehicle for a vacation, but it is easy to find in the parking lot. Hope some of that warm weather we had on the trip soon reaches Petunia's Garden. I've been wearing shorts for two weeks, and the first thing we both did at home (after finding the cats) was to put on long pants. Then I checked on the garden!

I bet so much has happened in the garden while you are away. Love that first photo!

Nothing like a road trip, and especially when you take the back roads. Love the moving truck at Mt. Rushmore!
