This was the view from our truck:
We pulled out of the campground at 8:20 a.m. I am finding straight through driving boring! David keeps reminding me it will take two weeks just to drive into Alaska. Fortunately, we have decided to stop at the World's Largest Bird Feeder - the Corn Palace in Mitchell, SD.
The town of Mitchell has a neat old clock downtown.
We stopped a family to take a picture of all of us outside the Corn Palace. Note we all have on jackets. It was cold!
Here's what the Corn Palace should look like:
After grabbing a bag of popcorn, we headed across the street for some serious shopping among all the corn items. Time for lunch and then back on the road!
The wind is crazy here. We have a 30 mph crosswind. I know it's blowing our small unit around. Can't image what Janice and Kay are feeling in the motorhome. We even noticed cows on the ground in the fields. Too windy to stand up!
We were surprised by something we saw alongside the road. SNOW! It had not melted from a storm that had been through there earlier the week before.
Speaking of snow, the interstates here close for snow. They are turn arounds and barriers that can be sent down to stop the traffic.
We also found out that Big Foot lives off the interstate in South Dakota!
We're headed toward the campground in Wall, SD. There are any billboards for Wall Drugs before you get there. I stopped counting when it reached 100. I don't know who has more signs, Wall Drugs or See Rock City.
I'll stop this post here and pick up with the trip into Wall, SD!
