Goodbye rainy Upstate NY! We're heading out from Syracuse this morning, having spent the night with Tim's mom. We're headed to Cleveland to meet up with a few more family members for lunch, and hoping to make it past Chicago tonight when the traffic is lighter. Today and tomorrow will be long days of driving, but hopefully it will pay off when we reach Badlands National Park, our first stop. Here's a rough map of our route, which Tim calls the Inner Loop:
I won't have a whole lot else to show, until we start reaching some beautiful scenery!
