Presque Isle is true to its name, a very long, skinny peninsula that hooks around Erie Pennsylvania like Cape Cod does for Plymouth Massachusetts. Better yet, for hikers and bike riders Presque Isle has a full forest tree cover to provide shelter with the typical winds of the Great Lake Erie. Along the path are sites of nearby Erie – no wonder with Presque’s protection the seaport was chosen by settlers hundreds of years ago. Of course, with such valuable real estate, it led to wars between the Native Americans, British and American Settlers.

After seeing family in Milwaukee and enduring the midday Chicago traffic, we arrived at the Indiana Dunes State Park and National Shores at Lake Michigan. If you’re in the area between the Spring and Fall, be sure to drop by even if it’s only a day trip.

As we head through South Dakota to the Badlands National Park to the Minuteman Nuclear Missile National Museum, we also dropped by the Walls Drug complex after seeing all the roadside ad signs. The Badlands are, well… not a place you’d expect to see much life including vegetation but the sandstone hills and cliffs are quite remarkable – just the kind of terrain you might expect President Teddy Roosevelt to trot through on his horse. Nearby we saw a sign for the Minuteman Missile National Museum so we thought “why not?” (or at least Michael was game). That said, not many enjoy the thought of our Country being involved in a thermonuclear war so if this sort of thing doesn’t make you wonder about our National deterrent to avoid future International Wars, we certainly understand why you might want to pass seeing our Minuteman National Museum.

After wrapping up our tour of the Grand Tetons (North of Jackson Lake), we entered Southern Yellowstone for an awesome “spin around the Park.” Yellowstone Falls had dramatic views and of course Old Faithful Geyser is not to be missed, complete with an insightful Park Ranger talk. Best of all, in the Lamar Valley we spotted herds of thousands of Buffalo’s, and even had one walk up to us in our RV!
While cruising up the Pacific Ocean, we stopped for a day trip at the Auto Safari in Chapin, Guatemala,. Most of the animals have free run in their individual domains while we watched from our tour bus. Lots to see including giraffes, lions, hippos, alligators, monkeys, reptiles (yeah, snakes, too), birds and more. cTv RV Life – no, but a fantastic respite to enjoy the good life!
