Scavenger Hunt Sunday Submissions

Welcome to my submissions for Scavenger Hunt Sunday. We went on a road trip to see Mount Rushmore this last weekend and I decided to wait for the trip to look for this weeks prompts.

Inspired by a Book or Movie
 One of my all time favorite movies is Dances With Wolves, so of course on our way home we had to stop at 1880 Town in Murdo, SD where the movie was filmed. We got to tour the old town and even view some of the props from the movie, like this one.  
Brown (Paper Heart Camera prompt)
 The movie props are housed in the top story of this unique old domed barn.
Hazy (Olivia's suggestion)
It was such a nice weekend there really wasn't much haze. I wanted to get a hazy shot of steam rising up from the Missouri river but unfortunately there was no room for me to pull over on the highway at that location. One of the major drawbacks of being the driver, you miss so many cool shots. I also missed a shot of smoke rising from the hills in the distance. So for the hazy prompt I have gone back into my archives and found one of the few hazy shots I have.
  I love the way the fog just hangs over the river.
Coffee or Tea (Olivia's suggestion)
Now back to photos from my trip. 
If you haven't already heard Wall Drugs is home to the 5 cent Coffee and Free Ice Water. The owners of this tiny town drug store made it big with the combination of Burma Shave style signs and offering free ice water and 5 cent coffee. 
Linger (Olivia's suggestion)   
 If you ever have the chance to visit Custer State Park near Mt. Rushmore unless you want to get kissed by a mule don't linger too long on the wildlife loop. This guy even tried to eat my mirror.
I had a wonderful time and will be sharing some of the wonderful photos I took on our trip throughout the next week.

If you would like to join in and play along here are next weeks prompts:
