If you say that South Dakota is a flat, boring ugly state. I won't believe you because it is simply untrue.
This is from a rest stop on the Missouri river. It is built on the hill overlooking the river.

I really do love seeing bales by the side of the road. This year I saw a field so full of bales it was almost not to be believed. They must have had the perfect mix of rain and sunshine to get so many.
Somewhere around here we got the call about my Dad being in the hospital and I stopped taking pictures, and started worrying.
