Great Faces Great Places

The night was wonderful with much more sleep than the previous two days, thanks Kaeden! We woke this morning to 11 degree weather but strangely it wasn't as bad as i thought it would be. The hotel we stayed in, Comfort Inn, left K an Easter bag of candy which was really nice. Since we got a late start on the day we also enjoyed the free breakfast which got us going. After reading last night about my horrible gas mileage I found that this "GASOHOL" shit they have up here, 10% Ethanol mix, was killing my mileage along with going a little too fast with that crap strapped to the roof of my car. So I slowed down to 70mph even though the limit is 75 and i got some regular gas...BOOM from 10 to 16mpg like that! We were making good time so when we got into Keystone, SD we decided to go see Mt. Rushmore!!! It is truely more amazing in person than I could have ever imagined. It was 27 degrees and snowing a bit so K wasn't too happy but the 15 minutes that we were there were breathtaking. We ate some lunch at Taco Bell and headed to Buffalo, WY where the mountains are gorgeous....more later
