Starting Point: Mitchell, South Dakota
Destination: Custer, South Dakota
Song of the Day: "Badlands" by Bruce Springsteen
In the teeny, tiny breakfast room of our hotel, we had a small world moment first thing in the day. We met somebody who lives the next town over and who also knows our neighbors, exactly where we live, and so on. It is, indeed, a small world.
Anyway, after breakfast we got on the road because we had a long, long day ahead of us. First stop was a drive-by of the Corn Palace right there in Mitchell, so it wasn't actually a stop.
On the way to our not-a-stop, we saw our first buffalo/bison on the side of the road/street.
Here are a few drive-by photos of the Corn Palace which was not complete yet this year. I liked seeing the work in progress.
After filling the gas tank, we actually did hit the road. It wasn't long before we saw our first sign of things to come.
