Montana and Wyoming

The sprawling landscape of Yellowstone

Against towering mountains

Form a place that I’d never seen before

The animals and people you meet at pull offs

Are what make the experience an experience

Waiting for Old Faithful to burst

After a long enough time it does

The height of the water felt as tall as a skyscraper

As people cheer it on

South Dakota

The tall, towering and terrifying Devils Tower

Lived up to the connotation of its name.

The Badlands weren’t bad at all

But in the heat of summer.

It was hot as hell.
