After months of quarantine, our little family of four (plus our over-sized dog) decided to make a road trip to South Dakota’s Black Hills National Forest and the Badlands National Park. The Black Hills National Forest is about 8.5 hours from Lincoln, so it’s a day’s drive, which meant that we didn’t need to worry … More The Black Hills & Badlands National Park
