- Jetsetting

My favorite section of the Sunday paper is the Travel section.  Every week there's the typical European/South American/exotic location, but then there's also usually a feature on something closer to "home".

This week I discovered the ultimate road trip.  From the Twin cities (obvi), through South Dakota to see Mt. Rushmore and the Badlands, and then all over Montana.  I knew that Montana was big for paleontology (I mean that's where they're digging at the beginning of Jurassic Park), but I had no idea that there was a Montana Dinosaur Trail.  And now it's a personal goal to see it, because I am totally a dork and at this point in my life I'm just embracing it.  I don't think I can swing it this summer, so it's tentatively on the calender for next year - but the goal is to pick a route that goes all the way up to Glacier National Park and so I can see that - complete with a helicopter ride, because I've heard that is something you should not miss out on.

Big Sky Country is now firmly rooted at the top of my list, with Ireland, New Zealand/Australia, and Grenada.

PS - Minneapolis/St. Paul should be at the top of your list or you are dead to me.

I think it's for ampersand and something got weird with the formatting.

But I'm not just talking to you...EVERYONE in NC should feel that way.
