Our Trip West: Day 2

Originally uploaded by apete.
Well, Day 2 was about as exciting as Day 1 but the roads were clearer. We continued from Rockford stopping in Madison, WI for some lunch. We plowed through Minnesota after crossing the Mississippi River which seemed extra large even this far north. We ate dinner at a Perkin's right after this photo was taken in Worthington, MN. My favorite quote from the booth next to me was something along the lines of, 'If you want to study art of the human body, you really need to move to Paris, the Twin Cities, or New York." So does this mean that St. Paul houses the second best life drawing studio in the world? Anyone?

Day 3 will include the Corn Palace, Wall Drug, Badlands and Mt. Rushmore. Stay tuned. I am trying to make an effort to blog everyday. I'll probably have flickr photos uploaded at least. Oh and it is supposed to be over 100 degrees today. I can't wait to get to Seattle.

Well, I'm on a blog again. We took off on Friday for Seattle. I had to drive down to Dayton, OH to pick up Sarah at the airport. My only goal that first day was to get on the other side of Chicago. I really hate driving through that city unless I am going there to visit friends. We plodded through slowly even though it was like 11 at night and rush hour or something was still going on. Let me know if you want more blogging...
