MT – Day 4 – BrGr 61, Keystone, SD

LOL! There is a burger under here somewhere! (This was Richard’s!) Before we took this trip I knew Thursday would be a busy day so I did my research ahead of time to plan a place to eat lunch and tea. I enjoy reviewing on Trip Advisor when we travel so turned to there to find places to eat. If you visit Mt. Rushmore which is just outside of Keystone, SD and enjoy a burger then you HAVE to go to BrGr... read more

MT – Day 3 – Dignity in Chamberlain, SD

No matter which direction you are traveling on I-90, make sure you stop at the Chamberlain Rest Area between exits 263 and 265. Here you will see this GORGEOUS 50 foot statue of Dignity. It doesn’t matter if it is dark when you get there either as she is lit up at night! Whilst there take the short trail where you can look down onto the Missouri River. You can see for miles. Well worth the stop.... read more

MT – Day 3 – The Corn Palace

7 photos in this post. No stop in Mitchell, SD would be complete without a visit to The Corn Palace. We first visited this back in 2002. Yikes that was 17 years ago! Michelle, Michael and myself, along with our friend Bev and her niece, Michelle’s best friend Ali, were on a trip from West Virginia to look at property in Montana. Richard and the three little ones had never been and I honestly could... read more
