Road Trip: Day 4




I finally made it to Rosebud today after my marathon road trip. We stopped at the Corn Palace in Mitchell, SD. The Corn Palace is a truly bizarre American phenomenon. The exterior of the convention center is made completely out of corn. Its impressive artwork, I must say.

Rosebud was exactly how I left it when I visited in December minus the foot or so of snow. As chance would have it, I ran into Dave Hedges, a Seabury alumnus, who was there doing a mission trip with his church. Its a small church after all.

This will probably be the last time I get to post for a while as I am in a hotel in Sioux Falls where my father is flying home from. We do have dialup at Rosebud, but connections are spotty. I will try to keep everyone updated on what (and how) I am doing.

I love the Corn Palace!! We stopped there on a family vacation when I was a kid, and I thought it was so cool. I tried to take Luke back one summer, but it turns out that they actually redo the outside every few years... so, he only got to see it "under construction," which is nowhere near as interesting.
