I spent a day in South Dakota. It was ridiculous flying into Rapid City, but worth the hassle. Denver airport and I were about to become really good friends, as when I landed, I realized, I couldn’t get on the flight to RAP, so I made a retreat for LAX, but the full flights and mechanicals left me looking for a plan D.
But, plan D turned into the original plan A and just about 16 hours after departing on my adventure, I arrived in the midwestern state I had intended to see.
And yes, I need a history lesson, but now, I am about three or four South Dakota and US History Facts smarter.
- I know who is on Mount Rushmore.
- I can tell you who’s genius created the faces in stone,
- I can tell you when the Keystone Taffy Shop opened.
