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:

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