Today was a pretty good day. Mr. McNaughton treated us to a great breakfast at a local restaurant and dropped us off at our ending point fromt he night before, Jewel Cave National Monument. Although we didn't have time to explore the jewel cave or try our hand at mining, the area surrounding it was beautiful. Apparently there had been a fire, the Jasper Fire, in 2000 and we could still witness the destruction caused by it. However, beneath the burnt out shells of the dead trees the new plants were growing.

We didn't stop until we hit the South Dakota border, happy to leave some of the bad memories and bad-lands behind us. The last two days we spent in South Dakota with the Miniches and McNaughtons and the site of Mount Rushmore and the Black Hills sweetened our view of South Dakota a little bit, but on the whole it is one of our least favorite states thus far. A lot of our distaste was due to circumstances, but it's good to be rid of it anyway.

Down the road a ways we came into Newcastle, a nice-sized city of about 4,000 people. We visited our old friend Jared at Subway, eating fresh for the first time in a few weeks. A couple was there ordering at the same time, but we didn't really notice them as we scarfed down our sandwiches. With our bellies full, we ventured back into the heat and were still in town when that same couple, David and Sandy Fisher, stopped by the side of the road and struck up a conversation. They seemed impressed with what we were doing and we were equally impressed with their kindness as they offered us a place to stay without us even asking. On top of that, they agreed to accomodate our schedule and pick us up about ten miles down the road so we could still get our mileage in. They have given us showers, plenty to drink, and clean beds to sleep in, so we are very grateful to them.

Well, I'm off to enjoy their company right now. We are extremely excited to see Matt's parents and bask in the comfort of Mommy and Daddy. It will make the days a lot easier. We're also looking forward to talking to our friends at the "Free Beer and Hot Wings" show again on Friday, so be sure to tune in as we catch up on the things that have happened in the last few weeks.
