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.
