Delightfully Different Corn Palace

One of the wonderful things that happens on cross-country RV trips is that you come across places that you never planned to visit. But since you are in the area, and have the time, they make delightful memories. Such a location is the Corn Palace, a special events center located in Mitchell, SD. Apart from endless fields of corn, the area is otherwise scenically-challenged.

As you can see by the pictures below, the building is decorated with murals made of colored corn cobs, augmented with other agricultural products. The pictures are changed every year between the months of August and October. What you see here are the almost-completed new year’s theme, designed by local college students at Dakota Wesleyan University. It is not a destination location, but well worth a visit if you are in the area.
