Inside the building is used as an entertainment complex and basketball stadium. While there the gift shop is on the main floor. The folks there were very nice. Alison collects squished pennies and wanted one from there, but both machines were broken, One of the ladies there told her to leave her name and some money for the penny machine and once fixed she would send here the completed penny
We left Mitchell about noon and decided to have a sit down lunch at one of the rest areas in route to Wall. The picture of the one room chapel is from the rest area. Also along the way I have included a picture of the grasslands. Boy is it rolling countryside.
Because we had extra time we decided to move up the Badlands to today, so you will see an entry for our visit there. I just don't think there are words for that place.
It was interesting that the building was covered in corn. I didn't think that was possible. Can't wait for next stop!
I had been to the Corn Palace many, many years ago. I was amazed how much the town had grown since then. A long time ago there weren't any shops. I remember we pulled into the town and parked in front of the place. They didn't sell anything inside. They just had a lady with information packets and a donation box. Not anymore! There are all kinds of tacky shops all around the palace. Now there are food cafes and a huge gift shop in the palace!
