US Road Trip

After Orlando, I flew to Chicago and joined up with a small group tour – a camping road trip that ran from Chicago to San Francisco. Along the way we stopped to visit such wondrous attractions as the world’s only corn palace.

The Crazy Horse Memorial is much bigger than the Mt. Rushmore memorial. It has been under construction for more than 60 years and still isn’t close to being finished.
