Day 38 - Driving and the Corn Palace!

Woke up a little earlier today since we were planning on an extra 6 hour side trip to grab caches in Minnesota and North Dakota. We first went to MN, to grab a cache on the border. It's a good thing we found that one. I think the next closest would mean an extra 40 minutes of driving. We then headed for ND, which was about two hours and 45 minutes away. Got there and found a cache fairly close to the border. It was a sad and touching cache, hidden at the grave of the hider's two year old son.

Welcome to Minnesota!
Welcome to North Dakota!
And welcome back to South Dakota once again!
We then drove to the Corn Palace in Mitchell, SD. Pretty much a tourist trap but who doesn't love those!
And after the Corn Palace, I finally got to go to a Cabela's. I'd always wanted to go to one and so far we'd seen a few on our road trip but had to pass them up because we were always pressed for time. But today we had some extra time and we spent some time (but no $$$) checking out the displays.

Tomorrow, Wall Drug, Badlands NP, and Mount Rushmore.
