October 18th

After driving over 700 miles yesterday, I’m now in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, and getting ready to ship out again. I’m hoping to make it to Chicago today. According to a distance-calculating site my dad sent me, it’s 474 miles from here to Chicago. South Dakota was a drive of mostly rolling hills. Saw signs for many historic sites and landmarks—Battle of Little Bighorn, Deadwood, the Badlands, Devil’s Tower—but didn’t stop at any of them. Here are a few shots from the journey so far:

Larches (they look like conifers but are deciduous, dropping their needles) turning in southwestern Montana:

Four shots taken from the car window while driving through Montana, "Big Sky Country":

I’m in Central Time now. One hour earlier than Eastern Time. Getting closer.
