This is absolutely true, so much so that I think we bypassed some areas that we should not have missed. It's like you have to keep going to see what's just around the next bend.
I can remember being amazed at the shear vastness of the corn fields in the upper mid west...miles and miles - days. Still in the corn fields I see a big sign on I-90 that warned of an impending steep down grade...WHAT THE... in a corn field? I don't think so. It was just like the first down hill scream of a roller coaster
, down into the Missouri River Valley and popping back up on the other side and into the Badlands and 16 other NPs that first summer. Seems like we would get to one NP, look around with our mouths open in wonderment and at the same time after a couple of days, would be getting antsy to leave to get to the next...it's an addiction I say, an addiction.
Ain't nothing like the view one gets from the big picture window of a RV.
