Road Trip Day 1

Sarah, Chewie, Yuri and I began our road trip Saturday, May 28. We covered a lot of ground the first day. The roads and traffic were easy and made the day fly. We started from Tom and Rebekah's house in Missouri.
Then into Iowa...
Then our last state of the day South Dakota, which I think turned out to be one of my favorite states of the trip.

Our first stop in South Dakota was just over the boarder from Iowa, Sioux Falls, SD. It seemed like a nice little town. We had a picnic lunch near the falls and then walked the pups around near the falls.

Back onto the road from Sioux Falls we saw signs for "The Corn Palace" It seemed to be close to the highway so we decided why not go see what this is all about. It sounded awesome enough. Advice from Sarah and I...skip the corn palace. haha It was more an auditorium than a palace and it is not as cool as it sounds. But the weather was nice so we were not too upset to be out of the car.
Next stop the scenic drive through the Badlands National Park.
The Badlands are AWESOME! A must see in South Dakota for sure.

We stayed the night in the town of Wall, SD that night. Looking back day 1 might have been the best day of the trip. We had some bad luck on days 2 & 3...more to come on that. :)
