     We actually headed east to Wall Drug rather than west to Little Bighorn. Apparently, these "Hearty Minnesotans" heard snow was in the forecast and wanted to head for cover.

      After a slight delay getting in to the hotel we were set to see Wall Drug. I didn't know much about it but had heard of it quite a bit. Basically it is a mini mall. It had quite a few stores, a cafe, and even a chapel just to name a few. The walls were covered with pictures and articles that detailed the history. Howard was able to find a beautiful little sculpture that he was looking for and dad found some shirts. We probably could have spent more time there but we had a couple of tired out travelers.

      Make sure you check out the pics and vids on the last few entries because that's where the best stuff is.


     I don't know what the plan is tomorrow because it's dependent on the whether  but I'll let you know.

Trip sounds great
It sounds like you you are having a great trip. If you find your selves arriving in MN with some time to spare, Mankato has a big monument in memory of those that lost their life in the mass execution - it is worth seeing, especially since it is so close to home. And if you find your selves looking for some 'holy water' stop by. This week it is definitely 'holy water'....last week, it was 'holy ice'.
Drive safely! yfa

Awesome
I'm really glad you told me to scroll down. I can't believe what I've missed the last couple of days. It's all really interesting and I'm sure you have more great stories. It's such a short trip since I heard you're coming back today. We'll have to take the motor home sometime and really take it all in.
