Mitchell, South Dakota

 It was a pretty day when we set out from Sioux Falls to Mitchell...more rolling hills and farms...
 But we noticed that there are always interesting things to see along the way...


 Getting closer...
 We arrived in Mitchell...now to find the Corn Palace...he didn't seem to know...
 Oh...there it is!
 Nice to see a friendly face to greet us...
 This place is really different...and oh so cool! Corn murals on all the outside walls...inside too!
It was as awesome as we had read about... 


 Here's a close up so you can see they really do use corn still on the cob!
 Here's how it looked 100 years ago...

 Yet another water tower...I sure love these things!
 We noticed there sure are a lot of casinos in South Dakota...they're everywhere!
 More huge buildings for small towns...I thought that was kind of funny... enormous building in such tiny towns...
 The main drag...pretty!
 Interesting place...Mitchell...
Another thing I love...I've probably said this a lot...all the Fall decor that's everywhere...love it!!
Another great day spent in South Dakota...
until next time...enjoy the day!!

How neat! Just a few weeks ago I actually saw something on TV about the corn palace. It's so cool! I had never heard of it before that.

I'm so glad you're sharing your trip with us! More than likely I will never be able to visit these amazing parts of the US and it's been fascinating for me to see cool places like the Corn Palace etc!
Best wishes

Linda, your pictures are wonderful! I'm your newest follower. I had seen a report on Mitchel on television and thought it might be a neat place to visit. Enjoyed your post today!

Opps, for some reason thought you were home. Glad you are still enjoying your drive through Smalltown USA. So, what is inside the Corn Palace? Is it a Casino too? Very interesting. Love Fall decor too and love that those small towns decorate it up.
