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

... 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 ...
