The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and discipline. -Proverbs 1:7

Road Trip 2014: Day 4

Mitchell, SD -> Key Stone, SD

South Dakota is so interesting geographically.  The land goes from being flat as a pancake, to some intriguing humps on the other side of the Missouri River to flat again.  And then, suddenly, the Bad Lands appear.  If you've never seen this, you must.  It is surely the most fascinating place in the U.S.  After you leave there, it's flat again.  Until the Black Hills where the road becomes sharply steep.  How can all of this exist within only a couple hundred miles?

We saw a lot.  The highlights:  Two prairie dog towns, hiking in the Bad Lands, Wall Drug (not exactly a highlight...Alicia was all "This is kind of weird.  It's just a huge souvenir shop.") and Mt. Rushmore. 

It goes without saying all of us slept like rocks.
