Texas To Washington… Part 2

Day 2 of our roadtrip found us waking up in Kansas and a huge storm passing through. Thankfully the worse of it was in Wichita and we only had a side of it in Salina. We waited for it to pass a little bit and for a break in the rain, once that happened we made a break for the car… Of course right as we got out the door it started pouring again. So we got pretty soaked loading up but that’s ok.

We drove and when we got to the border at Kansas and Nebraska we crossed the street to take pictures at the Kansas sign since we missed it the day before as well as taking pictures with the Nebraska sign. It was really windy so don’t mind my crazy hair in those photos.

We covered a lot of ground this day, we spent that night in South Dakota, but as I was going through photo’s I was already at 20 photos to share before even making it to South Dakota and the Badlands. So I’m breaking this day up into 2 posts. The photos are from all morning and early afternoon until we hit the South Dakota border.IMG_4137This is where Daphne spent the majority of the trip 🙂 We have lots of pictures of her right here but she just looks so cute sometimes you have to take a picture

IMG_4178I live on a ranch in Texas and across the street are lots and lots of corn fields… But in June when we took this trip our cornfields in TX were close to 6 foot already and almost ready to be harvested… Here are the cornfields in Nebraska in June… It was a crazy difference
IMG_4194Daphne found Nebraska to be very, very boring
IMG_4199We saw this church while driving from a ways back and decided we needed to pull off the road and go take pictures of it. So pretty. Of course Daphne had to get in on the action and see why we were pulling over
IMG_4210 IMG_4215 IMG_4220IMG_4228 IMG_4231We saw the sign for the NE national forest and decided to pull off to stretch our legs a bit and let the dog get some energy out. We didn’t go too far into the forest because right as we pulled off they had this pretty little lake area to walk around so that’s what we did.
