On Alaska?


After the water park, we didn’t want to have too long a day of driving, so we only drove as far as Onalaska, WI. Upon arrival, we realized we might have felt better if we had driven a few more miles over the Mississippi into Minnesota. This Comfort Inn is essentially in a little shopping plaza. That’s where we start today’s journey, which may or may not include DeSmet and Mitchell, both in South Dakota. Comment if you know what’s interesting about those places, without looking them up!

  1. I believe Mitchell is the home of the Corn Palace which is sided entirely with ears of corn of many shapes and sizes. I haven’t been there myself, but I’ve heard lots about it. Hope you get to see it.

    Looking forward to hearing about your first few nights of camping. Be sure to find a watermelon WITH seeds, for seed spitting fun around the campfire.

    • Hi Donna, thanks for writing! You are correct about Mitchell.

      Tomorrow is our first camping night, but we have a long day of driving ahead of us to get there! We’ve been practicing with watermelons from our CSA farm share, though admittedly we’ve been practicing “polite” spitting of seeds, not camp style 🙂
