The Road to Oregon/ Tuesday

Tuesday was hot…(98-104 degrees. The dog’s didn’t care for it much but they drank a lot. I drove across Minnesota and South Dakota ans spent the night in Rapid City ( about 1/2 way to PDX). I stopped at Mitchell SD. What a time warp. Everything here is corn this and corn that. It’s the home of the ever famous Corn Palace.( A tribute to corn–the building is actually constructed with corn as the siding. I took some rather amusing shots and some great signs… Check em out.

Tomorrow begins the climb into eastern Wyoming and into Montana–I’ll spend tomorrow night in Butte.

Here is another view of the Corn Palace…
