On Sunday morning we packed up from the Samboree in Hastings, NE and headed 6 hours north to our "new" home state of South Dakota. When we retired and became fulltime RVers we selected South Dakota as our legal state of domicile. Last December we flew from Virginia to South Dakota and changed over all of the necessary items to become legal residents of the state of South Dakota. The only negative was our timing, December! Needless to say, we didn't get a chance to see too much of South Dakota. We'll be here in Sioux Falls (the largest city in South Dakota) for the next 8 days, then travel over to the other side of the state to visit the Rapid City area for 12 days.
From what we've seen of South Dakota in the short 2 days since we arrived, we are impressed. There is a 19.2 mile paved recreational path which completely circles the city. Along that route are MANY city parks. We took no camera yesterday, so we'll have to save that subject for another post.

The major natural attraction here is Sioux Falls which are located on the Big Sioux River.

Trying to describe and photograph the Falls via flat, one-dimensional pictures is somewhat limiting. The following short video will hopefully give you a better feeling for the area.
Thanks for dropping by to take a look!
