Day 32 - Eastern border of South Dakota

We drove though the Badlands again this morning. It was fantastic; it was 6:00 am and there were no other cars in the park. We saw desert bighorn sheep along the way too.

Leaving the park, we jumped on I-90 all the way across South Dakota. We are about at the Minnesota/South Dakota border, and are staying at the Palisades State Park this evening.

Tomorrow, we plan to drive across Minnesota, into Wisconsin.

(We are back in the central time zone.)

Drove west all day on US 14 -- a pleasant highway, mainly through farmland with scattered lakes and towns (in about equal numbers). The whole state of Minnesota is laid out on a numbered grid system. Pipestone, for instance, is where 80th Ave meets 101st St, aka US 75 meets MN 30.

I think the numbering restarts at each county border -- but it's a lot more informative (to a lost driver) than County ...

Speeding Across the Plains

... what it was...) So there! Sioux Falls sits on billion year old quartzite, which was once covered by a mile thick glacier. Now a days the exposed rock bed makes for a lovely waterfall park in the center of town. We saw (and smelled) the Hormel plant nearby and elected not to take a tour. On to Minneapolis tomorrow to visit with Nancy Benson, an old peace corps friend. It's been hot. Did I say ...
