We continued on in to South Dakota, which was surprisingly beautiful. Small, yellow flowers covered the grassy hills. Round hay bales dotted the landscape. Everything seemed alive and well. We crossed the Missouri River and continued on through eastern South Dakota and in to Minnesota. We angled up through beautiful farm fields and scattered forests and rivers to the tiny town of Milaca, where we spent the night.
On the last day of our journey, we crossed the border in to Wisconsin. We stopped at the St. Croix River for Jasper to throw rocks. Hello, mosquitoes! We met up with friend Rori for lunch in Minong and then continued through the forests of Northern Wisconsin. Finally, we crossed the border in to the state of Michigan! By evening, we had made it to our friends house on the shore of mighty Lake Superior. Yes, Michigan!!
