which means I still don't know whether to believe in it or not, even though I've seen its license plates.
Actually, our decision to skip the other Dakota (we were planning to drive up to Fargo for lunch on our way from Rapid City, South Dakota to New Ulm, Minnesota) wasn't quite as regrettable as I anticipated it might be.
We started in Rapid City, drove out to Mount Rushmore and the Crazy Horse Monument (the latter was very impressive!), and then made our way on small highways up to Pierre, South Dakota - the state capital. And, well...there wasn't much of anything there. In Pierre or outside of it. No lakes, no hills, no roads, no people. Just...snow. Flat snow. So we retracked ourselves straight to New Ulm, Minnesota, where we saw Hermann the German and did a tour of the Schell's Brewery - the second-oldest family-owned brewery in the US...second only to Yuengling (shoutout to all of our PA friends).
Oh, North Dakota, what ARE you?
