Our second day we drove 663 miles to Independence, MO. President Truman was in the lobby.
Next to the motel they had a great ice cream place. Matilda had her first cone.
The following day was our longest yet. We drove 771 miles in a 12 hour day to Alamosa,CO. From there we went to The Great Sand Dunes National Park, an amazing place. The huge dunes cover more than 330 square miles. The tallest dune in the park is 750ft. Matilda and I didn't climb that far, but we climbed high enough to get the feeling of being somewhere in the Sahara.
It was really hot.
The motel in Alamosa was our favorite. They put out dog treats in the lobby and had a pet park in the back.
