August 3, 2007 - The Trip West

Oacoma, South Dakota

We're staggering home...go a little, sight-see, go a little more. Today was Wall Drug and the Badlands.

Wall Drug is probably 50% larger than the largest Wal-Mart. You can buy almost anything
imaginable at Wall Drug. It is even rumored you can buy medicines, bandaids,
and drugs! The entire building pictured is all Wall Drug, and
there is another 25% out of frame. The Sturgis crowd was here in force also.

Does this look like a drug store?

The Badlands...what else can I say?

Yellow domes - that's what they're called, but no mention of the pink tops.


Badlands Explorer




On a trail called Fossil Walk, there were fossils displayed in plexiglas domes. The locations
represented the area in which these critters would be found if they were not extinct.
