What yesterday lacked in adventure today made up for.
South Dakota is a gold mine of tourist destinations.
We were tempted by the billboards all along the way.
We stopped at the Corn Palace.
We got some corn there and then left.
It was a much needed stop.
We continued our drive until the billboards lured us in again....
and our stomachs got the better of us we headed on to our next destination.
They have, hands down, the best burger I have ever had.
Even Reader's Digest says so, so it must be true.
And their pie. NO WORDS can describe the deliciousness.
It was so good. I just want another piece right now...
It is almost worth driving through South Dakota again.
Just kidding.... kind of. But really I'm just kidding.
We continued our journey but had to make a stop at Wall Drug.
And we had been seeing billboards for it for over 200 miles.
It was a must stop.
Sadly it disappointed.
It was large, but after Casey's the food sadly disappointed.
And the ice cream wasn't that good.
And we have no need for needless tourist stuff. And it was stinkin' hot.
So if you are ever travelling through south dakota- don't get lured in by the Wall Drug billboards. Just go to Casey's instead...
And finally- Mount Rushmore.
The end to a very long drive but lots of memories made.
I think it was worth it.
I can easily say that when the day is over.
Tomorrow- on to Montana- and we get to meet up with Grammie Ruby and Papa Ken! Ruby has been looking forward to this day for a long time!!!
