Day 7 Update

Today was spent mostly driving from Colorado to Wyoming, then Wyoming to South Dakota. We stopped at Wal-Mart in Loveland, CO to buy my mom a new camera (she accidentally broke her LCD on her other one when getting out the car on Tuesday evening!), so now she's back in photo taking business. Then, we stopped at Fort Laramie National Monument, which was the main meeting point/link for the westward movement/expansion. The Mormon Trail, California Trail, Oregon Trail, and Pony Express went right through this fort - very historical site. Finally, we got into Custer, South Dakota. We are about 6 miles outside of Crazy Horse Memorial Monument and about 30 miles from Mount Rushmore. We will be heading to Crazy Horse, Rushmore, Custer State Park, and Wind Cave National Monument tomorrow. More updates and pictures to come. Hope everyone is enjoying this blog! Take care....
