South Dakota Anniversary Trip

Hey friends. Many of you know that we are doing a project called 50 in 50 where we are trying to go to a different state for our anniversary every year. By the time we hit our 50th wedding anniversary we will have been to every state in the US. It has been a blast so far and last year's state was South Dakota. 

South Dakota is a pretty neat place. It is extremely beautiful and there is so much to see and do. I would suggest, if possible, doing like we did and avoid the busy summer tourist season. We could tell just by looking around that the place probably gets kind of insane during the summer. I don't love crowds and lines so I was glad we missed that season. Nature is abundant in South Dakota and we kinda fell in love with the Buffaloes. There is also some pretty cool western history. South Dakota still feels like old America.  Go explore America people! We live in a beautiful country. 

This blog post is coming about 8 months late, but it did take me awhile to get all the film developed. I shot this entire vacation on film. I kinda just wanted to prove to myself that I could. I was pretty nervous that it wouldn't come out but I am so happy with the results. It worked out great. These pictures are not in any order, they are just a collage of what we saw and did during our stay.
