It was so windy the day we left Sioux Falls to head over to the Badlands (like 20/30 mph winds!) • So we pulled over here at this rest are to give @joseph_hinson.co a break from driving for a bit and it ended up being one of the coolest places! • This 50 ft statue titled “Dignity” was built of steel by sculptor Dale Lamphere and weighs 11 tons. It was engineered with pivoting diamond-shaped panels in the quilt so that wind can blow through it and not blow the statue over. • There was also a short paved path out to a scenic overlook of the Missouri River. • I would have to say that South Dakota has some of the best rest areas of anywhere we have stopped! •

← Falls park was such a cool place! There are waterfalls going right through the middle of the park! • The kids loved climbing around on all the rocks too (once I got them away from the water ). •
