It's amazing how many high-points are located on or very near borders. After we left Iowa's Hawkeye Point, we were in Minnesota in about 10 minutes.
It wasn't that much longer before we were in South Dakota.
Skye talked some sense into me, we've decided to skip trying to get the Dakotas high-points, even though we are so close and they are pretty easy ones. I took the busted window as a sign sort of; this translates into much more reasonable driving hours and the ability to do a little sight-seeing.
First stop, the Corn Palace.
A road side attraction that I've sped past every trip, until now.
The building is decorated with corn; corn cobs, corn husks, corn stalks. Corn, corn and more corn.
And they change it every year.
And there is more inside.
Pretty crazy, pretty awesome.
We pulled off the road to fuel up and I saw a billboard advertising the "Original" General Lee. I thought it would be interesting for Skye to see, just because of the recent controversy over the Confederate flag and how the show "The Dukes of Hazard" was so politically incorrect and yet no one blinked and eye. I can't imagine that show being on these days.
They charged $11.50 each to visit there museum. Highway robbery to be sure, but since we were here...
The Corn Palace was free.
However this place went on and on for acres.
It was a crazy collection of lots of old cars spanning decades and then all sorts of miscellaneous memorabilia.
