Road Trip 2014: 3rd Leg
Brookings, SD -> De Smet, SD -> Mitchell, SD
Little storm on the prairie. For real. It was 10 a.m. and dark as night.
Unless you've read the books, this probably means nothing. We went in there. Didn't buy a thing.
Couldn't skip the cemetery...
Prehistoric Indian Village in Mitchell. This place was fairly interesting. I was most intrigued about the number of domesticated dogs these people evidently kept a thousand years ago. Who knew?
I wasn't expecting the Corn Palace to be under construction. Seems like something their web page should mention. It was really only the front and we got a whole lesson on how they had to send the onion domes to Minneapolis for repair, so I guess all wasn't lost. I also didn't realize they decorated it over the summer to get it ready for their annual corn festival in the fall. Silver lining = We got to see that? No worries. They were still selling corn merchandise.
