Clouds before getting to South Dakota, the darker bottom edge is rain which is falling, but not making it to the ground
The breakfast at the Inn of Governer's was pretty substantial, so we filled up and went for a short look around at a gallery downtown, where many famous photographer's have their prints for sale, including some prints from Ansel Adams, and Henri Cartier-Bresson. A quick look at Back at the Ranch, a cowboy/girl boots store with real pretty hand made boots, and we went to Canyon Road where many galleries are located.

We had a long way to go today, so we went back to the airport and flew out of Santa Fe. We flew high and had pretty good tail winds, so only 3 and a half hours later we were at Yankton in South Dakota. It's on the Missouri River and Lewis and Clark Lake, which is a wider area of the river to the west of town. Luckily there were still someone at the airport when we landed right about 6pm, we got our rental car and drove to nearby Vermillion. Hmm, it's a pretty small town alright. We were lucky to find a restaurant downtown and had a decent Korean/Chinese dinner. There were some fireworks going on at the University of South Dakota campus.

Wow, the plane goes pretty fast. I would have thought it would take longer than 3 hrs to go so far.
