We spent the morning driving through (and stopping often) the Badlands. What a beautiful place to visit -- I can't imagine trying to cross it before there were roads.
After the Badlands - we really got into gear to travel some longer hours to get home. We made a stop at The Corn Palace in Mitchell, SD. While we were there, Matthew, who had been napping, said "Where are we? You said we were going to a corn palace and now we're in an auditorium with a basketball floor with a store on it! I'm so confused!" Lots of people who have played the Corn Palace have been confused, as well.
Final stop? Ehlenbach's Cheese Chalet in DeForest, WI. I got some 12-year-old sharp cheddar -- definitely the "bite you back" type. Highly recommended - (The Cheese Chalet as well as the 12-year-old cheddar!)
And then we were home. Today's unpacking and clean up day!
