We're gonna be spending a lot of time outdoors
. Watch the bison in their natural environment
. We'll visit the famous Mount Rushmore
Tired of the eternal hustle and bustle of metropolitan areas, my friends and I decided to go on a trip to places where nature prevails over man. We started our journey in North Dakota, which amazes with its variety of natural landscapes, and then moved to the south.
We've never regretted that we chose this particular direction.
Each of us has made pleasant discoveries for ourselves, we are all absolutely different, so the trip turned out to be a rich one: visiting museums, watching bisons in the wild, visiting national parks. We've seen some of the most notorious street sculptures and learned more about the history and indigenous people of North and South Dakota.
