In 2012 I moved from Wisconsin to California for my new job. I decided it would be fun to do another road trip and see some more of this wonderful country. My dad and my trusty dog Laika accompanied me on the journey, just like the last long road trip when I moved from Arizona to Wisconsin. This time, we decided to take a more northernly route on our way west and headed through Minnesota, South Dakota, Wyoming, Utah, Nevada, and then finally California.
Laika was a great traveler and took lots of naps in the car when she wasn’t looking out the window at all of the corn fields and mountains. She took it upon herself to stay up each night in the motels and keep watch over us.
The Corn Palace in Mitchell, SD is quite unique. It’s basically a big building that has mosaics made entirely of corn. We didn’t go inside because Laika was with us (and it was basically a big tourist trap).
