Yes, in Mitchell, SD there is the one and only "Corn Palace". This started in the late 1800's and continues today. Yesterday our hotel happened to be in Mitchell, SD and with that opportunity, we jumped at the chance for a visit. OK, maybe not top on our list, but it was fun. Just down the street was a nice Antique store were we did purchase a few items. With that said, as soon as we get home it's time to get ready for Kutztown.

|As you know, every festival must have their queen.|

Yesterday the weather was perfect. Stopped at Mt. Rushmore first. Very impressive. Then on to Crazy Horse. The sheer size is amazing and thinking this was started by one man is even more amazing. But I think it will be 100's years before it's done.
That's how large this is.

Yesterday was a long one. Because of the weather forecast we would have to leave Kearney, NE. and head west. So at 2am we were back on the road with only a couple of hours of sleep heading to WY. There was a place called Jay Em, WY. 375 miles away that looked good. It was a good choice, the weather was perfect. We saw 2 1/2 minutes total eclipse.
|Believe me, much better in person. |
The corona light, only seen on a total eclipse.
|This is not a sunset but 11:00 am at the start of the total eclipse.|
|Fellow eclipse watchers parked next to use, Richard from Denver and|
Hanna from Hollywood. Richard worked for NASA.
|And yes, traffic.|
