Corn, Corn, Corn, Rain, Corn, Corn, Rain, Corn, and more Corn

Ok.. so I realize corn is an important commodity in the world of agriculture, but my word people, how much corn do we really need!! I have never seen so much corn in all my life. And then there is the rain. It keeps raining. Which keeps making more corn grow. The people have gone mad in the west over corn. In fact, they are so crazy that they built a Corn Palace.
I am not kidding. A Corn Palace.
So what do you do if you are sick of looking at corn and you find out that there is a palace built in its honor? Well, visit it of course!
As you can see, my youngest and I have ‘corn on the brain’.
In all seriousness, we have had safe travels so far. Last night we stayed in a nice Courtyard-Marriott in Peoria, Illinois. Unfortunately, tonight we are staying in a Best Western Motor Inn in Mitchell, South Dakota. The $50 difference in price is very evident. I have reassured my wife that our budget is sound enough that any more hotels will be like the first hotel and less like the second. 🙂
Tomorrow morning we get up early so that we can visit the Badlands of South Dakota before arriving in Hill City, South Dakota where we will finally visit Mount Rushmore – my wife’s choice National Park for this trip. We hope to get less pictures with corn in them.
I am off for now. Night!
