BEAUTIFUL South Dakota

We've made our way up and over to South Dakota.  It is so beautiful here.  Miles and miles of farms and their crops.  Sunflowers, soybeans, red winter wheat and millet.
We drove 50 miles on Interstate 90

Then turned north on state highway 83.

We spent one night in a county park in Ft. Pierre, SD. right on the banks of the Missouri River.
In this pic the highway bridge is in front of the train bridge.

See that island, Lewis and Clark camped there on one of their trips up the river.

After I took that river picture we continued our way down this little state highway and went over a hill and this is what we saw.  It happens to be South Dakotas 125 birthday and in celebration of that a group of horseman and women are reenacting a ride that took place 125 years ago.  

There were about 100 different wagons.  I pulled off to the side of the road and we watched them go by.  Almost everyone waved to us and many said hi and commented that we were from California, a long way from home.

I'm closing today with three miscellaneous pics but they needed to be in here.

This bridge at first glance looks like it is metal but when we drove under 
it it was made from glulam beams, built in 1968.  Click here to see a story about this bridge.

These last two pictures are for my friends in California.  

These are some of the gas prices for South Dakota.

That's all for now, see you later.

  1. I think gas prices were 3.53 at Costco on Thursday... so we aren't *that* much more than Nebraska.

    1. I mean South Dakota, not Nebraska.

    2. No, you're not to far behind South Dakota.
