Jordancarcolby Pt 7

After a much needed night of sleep we opted to raid a nearby McDonald’s for breakfast and coffee, then go for a hike. There are apparently trailheads everywhere surrounding Bozeman, so we chose a manageable one to preserve our energy for later in the day and headed out. Read More

Jordancarcolby Pt 5

Our fifth morning was understood to be a working morning. We had to drive from Fort Collins, CO, to Badlands National Park in Wall, SD.
