... Oh boo. That was a bad one.
But seriously, I thought this was going to be silly roadside kitsch. But really, it was quite interesting to see the murals. Inside the building, there is a stage, a basketball court, and photos of the murals of previous years. And 500,000 tourists each year can't all be wrong. Besides, the gift shop has some amazing popcorn.
... there may be more to the story not sure but they are really cool and very interesting to see how they use the corn to make the pictures the corn is still on the cob too. What more can I say but If you are ever in the area make sure you do stop it is neat! And they have the Best Carmel Corn Ever!!! And you can get ANYTHING corn related ...
... is the only one that survives. By the way, it should be noted that corn is not even the most important commodity produced by this area. The building was undergoing renovations so access was tricky , but we managed to sneak in and grab a couple cheap items from the gift shop. Andrew will probably be drawing corn palaces for a while. Then we drove north to the lake and found this campground , where we will catch some z's. Tomorrow we have 2.5 hours to the Badlands and rain is expected ...

South Dakota has lots of cornfields and soybean fields just as Iowa did, but the land is starting to be a little more hilly.
About 40 kms from Sioux Falls we got the "X" on the gear display again. Just after that happened, we passed ...
... to us obviously car enthusiasts.
Went via the Corn Palace, but it was closed about 5 minutes before we got there. However, the main attraction is on the outside, so all was not lost.
Went to a diner for dinner, and got 2 drinks (no beer, yet again!) They were served in bottling jars, not glasses. Such culture!
Well, not that much to say anymore, but then the tourist part of the journey is largely over.
