Last Day in Rapid City
Last night we tried to get some sunset pictures at Badlands NP, however the clouds cover was just too thick. The sun could not break through the clouds, thus there were no colors in the sky. So I do not have any good sunset photos.
Today was our last day in South Dakota, we fly home tomorrow. Since today was our last day, we took it easy and did not do much.
From the Reptile Garden we went next door to the Founding Fathers Exhibit. It is a recreation of the signing of the Declaration of Independence based on the famous John Trumbull painting. What they did was take the painting, and make sculptures of all the people and placed them in the proper setting. Basically they made the painting three dimensional, which provided an interesting perspective, since you could walk all the way around the life size model. The exhibit is nice, and would be great if you are really into American History, but overall not something I would need to do again.
We ate lunch at ¿Que Pasa?, which had decent Mexican food. From there we stopped at Rocky Mountain Chocolates and then Landstrom’s which makes jewelry out of gold from the black hills. This basically concluded our day. The rest of the day was spent packing up all our stuff so it is ready to go tomorrow for the flight home.
