Listen to this post
I recently returned from a short trip to South Dakota and Wyoming. I traveled there with my son and eldest grandson. I thought it might be interesting to share our experiences with others. I put together a trip summary using Adobe Spark Page (just follow the link and you will be taken to the article. In the event there is something amiss with the Spark page, I also made a PDF version of the Spark page (which you can view or download). Feel free to leave comments on this weblog post since Spark Page does not allow for any interactivity.
In addition to the overview, I wanted to share a few photos from my Theta 360 camera so I have included those below as well. I hope you enjoy these vicarious views of what we saw only a short time ago. It was a fantastic trip (and a great chance to spend time with my son and eldest grandson).

This was my 21st trip since retiring in 2017. It has been a “wild ride” so far. I am so glad that I have the opportunity to travel (mostly when I want to) and spend time with family. For those who have not traveled much, I encourage you to take a trip and expand your horizons (yes, that was a bit of a pun). We are hoping to make these trips an annual adventure (focusing on a specific area of our planet and taking one of our three grandsons along on each trip).
As always, I look forward to your comments.
