Welcome back for the second part of our Vacation 2009!
Wednesday, July 29, 2009 we left Omaha, NE and headed towards Mitchell, SD. We spent most of the day on the road so when we got to Mitchell we found a camp ground and just stayed there for the rest of the evening.
Thursday, July 30, 2009 we got up and packed up to drive towards Custer, SD. On our way we stopped at several places and took our time driving on this day. We first stopped at the Corn Palace in Mitchell, SD. The place was pretty neat! It’s great how some people can take an ordinary item and turn it into art. After we left the Mitchell area we stopped at a car museum. The boys loved this! We also stopped at Wall Drug, a huge drug store with everything you could imagine. It’s more of a tourist trap then anything. We also drove through the Badlands. It’s really surprising that a place to barren is in the United States. We tried to walk around a little bit but the heat was too much. Our last leg of the drive was driving through Custer State Park in the dark trying to make it to our camp ground. This was really scary for me! I don’t do well on really windy roads in a big RV especially in the dark. We eventually made it to our camp ground that night at about 11pm and somewhere we crossed the time zone line but we didn’t realize it for a while! I was just glad to make it to our destination that day!
