Antelopes and Presidents

On Wednesday we left for Mount Rushmore in Clay and Steph's Sportsmobile!! So much fun!!! I thought South Dakota would be ugly dry grasslands, but boy was I WRONG!!! SD is GORGEOUS!!! We had a ton of fun, most of our time was spent on the motorcycles, which we were SO glad we brought along.

Our Near Blow-Out

The Men: Eric, Clay, and Micah
The Ladies: Nakita, Steph, and Rachel
Hopefully you know about the famous STURGIS - Home of the Annual Sturgis Motorcycle Rally

The Big Turtle Eric saved - by moving it off of the road: It looked somewhat prehistoric. He saved it from becoming part of the famous ROAD KILL CAFE!!
Cruisin' through Keystone


The weekend before we went to Antelope Island with our friends and camped over night. I finally experienced floating in the Great Salt Lake, VERY COOL, I'd recommend it too anyone who hasn't experienced such, and doesn't mind billions of brine shrimp surrounding you :)
Smashed bugs from running on the beach. They were EVERYWHERE!!! Thank you 100% DEET repellent.

I've never seen a turtle with a tail like that! It looks like you guys had so much fun! Bringing the motorcycles was an EXCELLENT idea!

Looks like you had so much fun! Thanks for your comment; I am so happy!!! I added your blog to my links too. Such a fun way to keep in touch and keep updated. I'll have lots more pics to come for you to see. :) Oh, and I love your grandma. She is so cute and I loved working in the temple with her. Sadly, I won't be working there anymore. So, tell her I said hi and give her the good news for me!
