I started the morning with a massage.  It was well needed after so many hours of driving and sleeping in a tent on this trip.  After I had a large greasy breakfast.

I drove up the hill in Deadwood to the Mt. Moriah Cemetery and saw the final resting spot of Wild Bill Hickock and Calamity Jane.












Once I left Deadwood, I made a very long journey southeast.  Along the way in South Dakota I stopped at Mitchell to visit the Corn Palace.  With all of the jokes I have heard at my expense associating corn and Iowa, I have to sya that I don't remember any palaces being constructed from corn in Iowa!!













I continued my 680 mile drive to Des Moines where I styaed with my Uncle Russ and Aunt Jane.  We sat up for a while and caught up.  It was great to sleep in a comfortable bed finally.
