University of SD - "At the heart of the USD campus, historic Old Main is the University's oldest building. Originally built in 1883 as University Hall, Old Main was destroyed by fire in 1893 and was immediately rebuilt. An assortment of materials and adornments from the 1893 Chicago World's Fair were used in the rebuilding, but not necessarily the iconic spires as often suggested by folklore.The building was completely renovated from 1993 to 1997 and now serves as the home to classrooms, USD's honors program, the Center for Academic Engagement, Farber Hall and the Oscar Howe Gallery."

And we are ready to leave Creighton 9.21.  Did not make it far before we realized SOMEONE does not like the trailer.  After switching the dogs around and CB was in the stroller he then decided to hurl!   UGH!!!! Another thing I did not think I would do on the trip, clean up dog vomit from a baby stroller.  Maybe this will sound funny next week...

Park is in the center of town and has 4 of these arches at each entrance made from Ell antlers.  Dont worry, no animals were harmed in the making of these sculptures.  Elk "shed" them each year and grow a new rack. Cool!

Carl had to be tied down, he forgot he is not a real bird He tried to take flight (scardy baby is afraid of wolves) and got busted up. I told him he is plastic and cannot fly, but does he listen? NOOOO!  He is such a typical teenage boy (in bird years) !

One thought on “2014 Scenic pics”

  1. You probably don’t remember me but I talked to you briefly on the bike path between Ventura and Carpenteria in California. Your journey obviously is continuing to go well. Good luck!!! Very nice pics of your travels.
