Taking the back roads in Nebraska and South Dakota
We left Utah on Wednesday morning. We had planned on leaving Tuesday, so we could travel a bit slower but there was bad snow storms all across Wyoming. Right where we needed to go. So the smart thing was to hang out for a day, and wait out the weather. Good thing to, when we did go across Wyoming on Wednesday there was quite a bit of snow piled on the sides of the highway in places. We made it to Cheyenne that first day, then traveled into Nebraska on Thursday. We went through the upper left corner of Nebraska a few years ago, so this was all new territory for us.
I have to say, I loved the wide open spaces, the nothingness for miles on end, and the quirky little towns. Traveling with the house is harder, because we can’t stop or turn around on a dime. So when I see a photo op, hopefully there is a way to stop and check it out. Such was the case with this old building.
It looked like a combination of an old church, and maybe a town hall type of place.
The inside was pretty rough, to say the least. I can’t believe they just left the piano.
For some reason this window in the wall was very interesting to me.
As we were cruising along, a friend of mine on facebook said we should go see carhenge. I remembered that I did want to see that, and when I asked the google map lady, we realized a short detour would take us there. What a fun side trip it was. The old cars were fantastic.
I thought this creation was pretty imaginative.
We made it through Nebraska and into South Dakota on Thursday. That night we stayed in Winner, SD. We traveled on the back roads the whole way through Nebraska and South Dakota, all the way to Sioux Falls. We like taking the road less traveled and the trip was more interesting for it. America is a very interesting, and diverse place.
More photos and stories on our trip in the coming days.
