Today we spent our day driving across South Dakota. It is a sparsely populated state which needs to erect ridiculous attractions to get motorists passing through to stop. Luckily for them, we are such motorists.
South Dakota definitely caters to the motorist. Here is an elaborate rest stop on I-90.
We drove through the Badlands National Park. Sora slept most of the way, but it was beautiful and the first interesting landscape we've seen so far on the trip.
We had planned on camping near Wall in the national grasslands, but with high chance of thunderstorms for a second night in a row, we treated ourselves to a hotel room. This freed up our evening to go swimming at the Wall city pool and play in the playground.
