You get to swim in the city’s pool if you stop here and camp during the summer. That’s a perk you don’t see every day. Bridget liked it here because there was lots of green grass to lay in. Don’t know how we missed stopping here before. I guess it’s because we don’t take Interstate 90 to get to Mitchell from Yankton.

We traveled from the corn/soybean area into the corn/soybean/cattle area today. More and more cattle are beginning to show up in fields and feed lots. I feel so sorry for those in the feed lots. They get shipped in from...
