We're Back from the Rockies!

We finally got back from the long drive to and from the Rockies to pick up the VW camper. It was a long, but cool drive. It took us 3 days each way, and we stayed one night at Donna's (where the VW was). She let us go in her hot-tub outside, where she lived on the side of a mountain in the Rockies. We saw the stars so clearly, and the Milky Way! We saw lots of things along the way. . . the Badlands NP, and of course the Rocky Mountians and we drove past Glacier NP. We also drove past Theodore Roosevelt NP, which is in N. Dakota. We saw Painted Canyons SP. But most importantly, we got the camper, and drove it home all the way with no problems! We were really excited to sleep in it for the first night off the side of Hwy 2 in Montana. Cooking lunch inside it was fun too! Some pics:

This is the VW on the bridge which leads to where Donna's place was. It is on the side of the mountain on the left.

Its first fill up of gas!

The miles turned over to 20,000 miles somewhere in Minnesota!
