Sioux Falls Sculpture Walk
Once we got settled in the RV park in Sioux Falls, we decided we better go explore a little. Saturday was forecast for a lot of rain, and we also had the installation in the morning. We wanted to see the falls, and Falls Park was beautiful. The falls were bigger than I expected, and there were the remains of an old mill there too.
I found out later that all the red rock was quartzsite, it was so pretty and there a lot of old buildings in the town built with it.
We could see the spires of this church when we drove to the downtown area, so we went to check it out. It’s a cathedral that was built in the early 1900’s. Such beautiful architecture.
The next morning was the installation of all the sculptures in downtown. They have this down to a science. All the places for the sculptures were ready, and they assigned everyone a time. All this started at 5:30am, and we were scheduled for 7:00. They just make their way down the street, welders, forklifts, and the people running the show.
It was all very impressive. And there were a lot of great pieces there.
If you are in the Sioux Falls area in the next year, you should go see the exhibit.
We left Sioux Falls on Sunday morning and headed for Rapid City. We spent that night in Chamberlain right on the Missouri River. We were ready for some peace and quite. We also wanted to visit the Akta Lakota Museum, and that was a real treat.
The next day we headed to the Badlands. More on that later.
