In June 2013 we set out to cross half the country from our home on the Central Coast of California to a family reunion in Iowa and then to look at Missouri to see if we should move there.
We left home and stayed in Reno the 1st night, then southern Idaho, West Yosemite Montana, Cody Wyoming and after a terrible storm with a nearby tornado we stayed in Deadwood South Dakota. The next day I took this photo with the @Canonusa Rebel XT my mother in law loaned me. I used the 55-200mm lens set at F/14.0 55.00mm ISO 400 1/400 taken 6/12/2013 & is definitely one of my earliest photos were I concentrated and thought about what I was doing. Still without a tri-pod or monopod, I rested my arms on a fence railing for stability. #istock#gettyimages#travelchannel#natgeo#landscapephotography#natgeotravel#mountrushmore#vacation#smugmug#youpic#youpictravel#natgeophotos#natgeoyourshot#southdakota
