Interstate 90

It took two days to get us to a landscape we had never seen before. And the long drive was completely worth it.

It has taken a long time to go through all the thousands of pictures I took on our trip to South Dakota and I’ll start with the photographs taken when everything in the landscape changed. They don’t call it “Big Sky Country” for nothing.

Moonville Tunnel

A couple weeks ago when the boys had the day off of school, I was able to get them off the computer with the promise of a cool destination. All I knew is that the place sounded really cool: Moonville Tunnel.

I wasn’t sure what to expect. The closer we got to Moonville, the more scrappier and dilapidated it became. We saw lots of characters and lots of broken down houses on the way: we saw a road rage incident with a guy in Army fatigues, small children playing in a swamp, and we saw lots of chicken, horses, goats and all kinds of trash.

After the day ended we agreed that we couldn’t decide which was more interesting – the actual tunnel or the sights on the way.

Rural Ohio #2 – More Horses

Looking through the SD card again more photographs were worthy of another post. Because the horses were just so darn pretty.
