Road Trip June 2008

Bison Tom and his wife loaded up the RV and hit the road in June of 2008. They first explored Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks for three days before heading up to Glacier National Park for another three days. On the way to the Black Hills of South Dakota, they stopped to visit Little Bighorn and Devils Tower. With a home base in Rapid City, they visited the Badlands and Wind Cave National Parks, Crazy Horse Memorial, and Mount Rushmore. Heading north again, they visited Theodore Roosevelt National Park in North Dakota, and then traveled eastward to northern Minnesota. Here, they visited Voyageurs National Park before setting up home base in Duluth. They took a scenic drive up the coast to Grand Portage, stopping to see cool lighthouses and waterfalls along the way. From Grand Portage, they took a small boat out to visit Isle Royale National Park. The last destination was Warren, Indiana, to attend a big family reunion. Tom had a great time reconnecting with long lost relatives and revisiting childhood memories.
