To me it was worth the drive to see the expansive prairie. Mind you it is 8 miles off rt. 385 on a dirt road. Be sure to clock the miles when you get off the highway, or you will go by it and have to turn around. Most people won't it is worth it, but I'd you key your mind go you can see the plains as they once were.
Who would guess that the Center of the USA is located in South Dakota. You can take a beautiful canyon drive and see the bridal Vail Falls, where I'm sure there has been more than one proposal to marriage at this location. Enjoy the pics.
