Road Trip!!!!

After seeing the sculpture park, we kind of understood the angry cows.


Next we hit the Corn Capital of the World, Mitchell, South Dakota. Built in 1892, the building is completely  covered with 3,000 bushels of corn and grains that's arranged in murals all over the building. Each year they pick a new theme. This theme was "Life on the Farm 2005." They were just tearing it down to make way for the next theme.


The murals were so good, it was amazing they were made out of corn cobs!


It was funny to see how many birds were flying up to the building for a nibble.


Inside they had a gift shop set up with all sorts of corn-themed items. They also held weddings, concerts and sports events there. We bought a bag of awesome caramel corn. Thanks to Susie for the great tip about the Corn Palace!


About 30 miles away we stopped at a rest stop. There was the tiniest little church there. You'd have to bend down to get inside. It said everyone was welcome to come inside.


As we were driving, we saw this on the side of the road.


It was a skeleton man walking a skeleton T-Rex. It was literally in the middle of nowhere. There weren't any small towns that were within 30 miles. We couldn't figure out why it was there. It was over 200 miles from the sculpture park so it didn't have anything to do with that. It was a mystery.


In Cactus Flats, SD is the World's Largest Prairie Dog at Prairie Dog Town. They had a cute gift shop and you could feed prairie dogs but we were running out of daylight.


Even though it was getting a little late, we decided to take the scenic route through the Badlands National Park.


It was really pretty there and, like the Monument Rocks in Kansas, they were in the middle of otherwise flat land.
