Started the day on the western edge of central Wisconsin, where I have family to visit, including three great nieces, and ended the day on the eastern edge of South Dakota, at a place called Pelican Lake.
Before I got too far into the drive, I met up with a spacetweep friend on his home turf (last time we met up was in the Amsterdam airport a few months ago). He had excellent taste in local eateries. If you’re ever in the area, check it out, the bacon cheeseburger was perfect. Thanks, Danny!
All across the width of Minnesota were these amazing vistas, with the land so flat most of the time that I had 180 degree views of sky and clouds. It kept me entertained during the long straight stretches of road between gas stations, which pretty much describes the driving itself. I used one shot as the quotation of the day (below).
This is farm country, and so I had to shoot a few as I drove by. This one ended up being my favorite shot.
And the day ended well, with this view out my big front window.
