After a brief stop in Indiana, we headed west again. So far. we have traveled though VA,WV, OH, IL, IN, IA. We are now stopping in South Dakota.
A fun place and very interesting place we stopped at was The Corn Palace in Mitchell, South Dakota.
It's located in the middle of nowhere, but is a great place to get out and stretch your legs.
The Corn Palace was first established in 1892! Mitchell, South Dakota at the time was a small town. The palace was built to be a community center and a place to celebrate the crop, the growing season, and the all important harvest.
Each year a theme is picked. This years theme was rock of ages! It commemorates America's music.
The place is created using a variety of corn, grasses, and grains. They currently use 13 different colors of corn!
It's amazing to see the beautiful pictures they have created using crops from our great nation.
Inside the palace, they have a wonderful exhibit that contains pictures of the previous year's Corn Palace designs. Some of the creations in the past were incredible!
We crossed over the Missouri River!
Next stop......Prairie dog town!
