Well, been busy on vacation, no time to upload anything. An early morning in Michigan. 5:16 PST and quiet now I can do this..

So.. did the Bear Country USA in Rapid City. Kind like Lion Country Safari in Orange County. Drove through the park and saw some really cool animals..





And Michael liked this hat..

but did not get it. Too many places to find this stuff...

Then off to Wall Drug, the worlds largest drug store... With a saloon, gold mining, chapel, dinosaurs, etc... they have it all in South Dakota!




Then off to the badlands. A bit of a drive, but worth seeing.....




And I guess.. Michael liked making friends with the chickens at a prairie home..



Not thinking about moving here though...

And finally... The Corn Palace... Decorated with 42 different types of corn, in no-where South Dakota... This is decorated each year with a different theme.. Don't know how they keep the birds from eating it but it is there..



When we got there, they were having a national Polka Dancing festival... We did not join in... Maybe next time...

Off to Mackawac Island tomorrow, more to some..

Have a good morning!!

Good Pictures!
Guys,

Thank you for the pictures. Steve, I know you take about a 100 pictures at every stop you make. Please post more so we can enjoy. I liked the Chief big face look! Enjoy Mackinac Island. The drive over the bridge will be like you flying in your motor home 400 feet above Lake Superior. You can see the water through the grated road bed. Scarey!! Enjoy the island fudge. That's what they are known for. The Hotel is beautiful! It takes you back to the 1800's. Catherine, you won't have to worry about someone asking you to dance there. Just count how many times you hear people say 'EH' or 'A' sp?

Keep the pictures coming!!

Stay Safe!!
Jeff & Mary
