The Benny family has been on a road trip westward. We’ve gone on some hikes (paved ones) in the hills of western Nebraska, took a two hour tour through Wind Cave, in SD. We spotted a few bison at the same park.
Although we did not stop, we could see the development of the Crazy Horse Monument. Still years away from being completed, but a good effort so far.
Today we awoke up at dawn and saw a deer nursing its fawn.
We decided to come early to Mount Rushmore, and as someone who celebrated another year on the planet three days ago, this place means something to me. But I cannot be here without some pause as to what Washington, Jefferson, TR, and Lincoln would be wondering about our country, other than perhaps what at The Wing would want: a better future with inclusiveness and justice.
Consider this open thread. I just wanted to say hi since I’ve been traveling all week.
