I’m in the habit of dismissing states that aren’t along the coast. “Flyover” is a word I’ve used a lot. I’m going to stop using that word because today I fell in love with St Louis, which was a gateway (pun intended (Gateway Arch! Get it?)) to Middle America.
There’s a lot I want to type about the things that we ran into today – two separate Washington Monument replicas, a Lewis & Clark Memorial, eating on the curb of a truck stop, and visiting 5 states I’ve never been to – but I’m too tuckered out. Michael and I just got to our Airbnb in Sioux Falls, SD, and are ready to pass out.
I’ll write more tomorrow from the road! Until then, enjoy this picture of Mikey and I in front of our latest favorite National monument.
