Day 5 – Mitchell to Yankton

June 13, 2012 § Leave a comment

We shouldn’t have complained about the wind yesterday. Today, it was much stronger and right in our faces the whole time! We had a few gusts that stopped us in our tracks. At times, it was like trying to bike against a wall. One gust nearly knocked us over! We covered very little territory today.
Besides that very strong negative, there were a lot of great things that happened today! The population density has greatly increased after we passed the Corn Palace. We passed through Dimock, which is Evan’s favorite town of the entire venture. It’s a small town, but has a bunch of very new-looking homes and a beautiful church. Pictures of the older part of town are below.
We’re camped at the Lewis and Clark Recreation Area on the Missouri. It’s a beautiful park, stretched along the border with cliffs across the river. Looking forward to Evan’s birthday tomorrow!

This picture and several below are from the oldest part of Dimock.
