Tonight we are just outside of Sioux City, IA in Stone State Park. We have electric which is nice since the AC is needed. We also are in some shade from a couple of big trees and we have an AT&T connection so our WiFi is working. The one thing we don't have is a Verizon signal for our telephone. That's hard to believe since we are right along I-29 and just outside the city limits but so be it, we will get our voicemail when we get back to civilization.
One unusual sighting along our route today was this unusual water tower in Pipestone, MN.
Also at Pipestone, MN is the Pipestone National Monument. This is where many native American tribes mined red stone to carve their peace pipes. Some still practice that art today and this is where the town got its name.
Another nice feature of today's drive is the wildlife sightings. We saw deer and turkeys early in the day and several turkeys along the way. One sighting was a couple of hens with about a half dozen chicks crossing the road right in front of us. Jo saw a doe with two fawns out in a pasture that I didn't see. We definitely have left the big tree country. It has been all croplands with mostly corn and some beans in huge fields.
