South Dakota Vacation: Day 1

After our vacation got delayed due to an unforeseen blizzard that attacked South Dakota, we were more than ready to get there.  We were told the Rapid City airport should open by 8 p.m. Sunday.  We hopped on our first flight.

Once we finally got to Dallas Sunday evening, we were informed that our flight to Rapid City had been cancelled.

Rapid City didn’t care about our vacation.

We rushed to get on a flight to Omaha where we would just figure out our plan from there.  We rented a car and from 9:30 that night to 5:30 the next morning, we drove from Omaha, Nebraska, to Hot Springs, South Dakota.  Got to Dad’s just in time to watch the sun rise.

We had breakfast at a local cafe.

Took a walk through Susan’s garden:

Stepped out of the driveway to this scenery:



Hey, there’s me and Susan!

We drove to Rapid City to see the aftermath of the storm:

Thanks for stopping by!
