South Dakota Trip – Day Five

We traveled back up to Mt. Rushmore this morning for a quick breakfast and one last look at America’s greatest rock stars. After that, it was time to start our long journey home. We made several small stops along the way. Our first stop was in Rapid City. High atop Rapid City are several huge, concrete dinosaurs that look over the city. They are part of a depression-era WPA project. They were really cool to see.

Heading back on I-90, it began to drizzle on our way out of town and rained for our entire trip today. Just outside the Badlands, we stopped and learned about the now defunct Minuteman missile silos that used to be in the area. Our next stop was at Al’s Oasis in Chamberlain, SD. The four of us were totally unimpressed and quickly jumped back in the van. Next, we went to the Corn Palace in Mitchell, SD. We really enjoyed looking at the artwork in corn displayed there. We finally ended the day at our hotel, the Clubhouse, in Sioux Falls, SD. Tomorrow, we finish up our trip with a journey across Minnesota and Wisconsin.

    How cool! We have family in Rapid City. I remember those dinosaurs way up there.
    Isn’t Mt. Rushmore nicer now? You can walk all up under there and stare right up Jefferson’s nose. : )
