Today we traveled from Yankton, SD to Pierre, SD, visiting old Fort Randall, the Akta Lakota Indian Museum at Chamberlain, and the Cultural Heritage Center at the capital. Along the way we got beautiful views of the Missouri River and were able to see three legs of the Grand Detour, or Big Bend. ok.

Below is the ruin of an old chapel at Fort Randall, first military post in SD, 1856-1892
