Road Trip Home from Idaho – Day 4: Oacoma, SD to Des Moines, IA

Bridges of Madison County in Iowa

April 2, 2013: After a good night’s rest in Oacoma, we were back on the road heading east with our first planned stop being an early morning visit to the Corn Palace in Mitchell, South Dakota.

Originally built in 1892 as the “Corn Belt Exposition,” it became an iconic landmark and attraction in Mitchell after 1921.  Every year the exterior decorations are stripped and a new theme is created. The work is done by local artists.  The 2013 theme is “We Celebrate” and each mural is a depiction of an American holiday.  The artists use 13 different colors or shades of corn to decorate with. Typically there are over 275,000 ears of corn used annually on the murals. There is a nice list of the history of the murals here.  The Corn Palace has a full sized basketball court inside and even has big name concerts.

From Mitchell we continued east on I-90 toward Sioux Falls.  Unbeknownst to me, in the small town of Montrose, South Dakota, right off the freeway (near Exit 374), there was an unusual site.  I actually pulled onto the shoulder to get out and get shots of what is known as the Porter Sculpture Park, which includes an amazing 60-foot tall bull’s head, which is what got me.  For some reason I had overlooked this one!!  I got a few photos from where I was, but was already past the exit and we were pushing the clock.

Vultures that represent politicians and buzzards holding giant knives are just some of the over 40 creations that came from the inventive mind of Wayne Porter, a blacksmith who uses his appreciation of history to create metallic works of art at his establishment.  Apparently, Porter spent approximately three years creating the 25-ton bull’s head which is mostly made out of railroad tie plates. This could definitely be the largest bull’s head statue around.

From Montrose we continued east towards Sioux Falls and then on to I-29 south past Sioux City, Iowa.  Along the way I saw a sign for Onawa, Iowa noting it as the home of the Eskimo Pie. I had to drive through the town of about 3000 and see if we could find where it was invented.  Research shows me that someone named Christian Nelson invented it in 1920.  Interestingly enough, he originally called it an I-Scream Bar.  He later partnered with candy maker Russell Stover to patent the product. (See History here) They also claim to have the widest Main Street in the U.S.A. Though I drove around a bit, I couldn’t find a museum or anything…but, there were the hanging banners!!  I wish I could have found an Eskimo Pie!!

After that little detour we continued south until we hit I-680 north of Omaha and headed towards Des Moines on I-80 until we got to Exit 106. I have always wanted to go to Winterset, Iowa, famed for the “Covered Bridges of Madison County” (See a map here).  Robert James Waller made these famous with his book called The Bridges of Madison County. The county originally had 19 covered bridges, but now only six remain.  There are actually a couple of other places in Ohio with quite a few covered bridges including the bridges in Greene County (see map) near Xenia (see my write up of my visit to many of these), the 18 bridges in Fairfield County (also see map) and the 17 bridges in Ashtabula County (also see map here), including the newest and longest, which is the Smolen-Gulf Bridge at 613 feet long (see my photo of this bridge).  There are just over 125 covered bridges still in the United States and I have been fortunate to have visited many of them.  Therefore this was an exciting visit for me.

Madison County Courthouse, Winterset, Iowa
Madison County Courthouse, Winterset, Iowa

First thing you see in Winterset is the amazing Madison County courthouse! This courthouse was built in 1876. The Renaissance Revival structure has four wings which join to form a Greek cross. The silver-colored dome reaches a height of 136 feet (41.5 m) into the air and it contains a 1500-pound (680.4 kg) bell.  The inside is wonderful as well.  I got to go in for a look see.

Across the street from the Courthouse is the famous Fons and Porter’s Quilt shop. Fons and Porter are two famous quilters that have produced a TV Show, the Love of Quilting Magazine and more.  Though I am not a quilter, my wife is and she was excited to visit here.  We found out that the store front was built specifically because people were always looking for one in their travels to Winterset.

Winterset is also famous as the Birthplace of John Wayne.  I did drop by there for a visit.  The visitor’s center was closed when we got there, but I did get a photo opp in front.

John Wayne was born Marion Robert Morrison on May 26, 1907, the son of Clyde and Mary Brown Morrison.  Interestingly, on May 24-25 (in nine days), the center will host Maureen O’Hara, who starred with John Wayne in 5 of his movies. Over his 50-year career, John Wayne appeared in more than 175 movies from major Hollywood epics to shorts, documentaries, promotional films, television shows and special appearances. Though there are actors who may have appeared in more movies, it is yet to be seen if any actor will ever better Duke’s record of being the lead in more than 140 films.

But the real interest in Winterset was the covered bridges.  Our first one was the Cedar Covered Bridge. This bridge was built in 1883 by Benton Jones and is 73 feet long.

Unfortunately, the original Cedar bridge was destroyed by an arsonist in September 2002.  They have reconstructed it and the new bridge was dedicated on October 9, 2004.

Like the Cedar Bridge, the Roseman Covered Bridge was also built by Benton Jones.  It is 107 feet long. This bridge is also known as the “haunted” bridge. Apparently this is where two sheriff’s posses trapped a county jail escapee in 1892. It is said the man rose up straight through the roof of the bridge, uttering a wild cry, and disappeared. He was never found, and it was decided that anyone capable of such a feat must be innocent.  This bridge was renovated in 1992.

The Holliwell Covered Bridge is another bridge built by Benton Jones in 1880.  It is the longest of the Madison County bridges at 122 feet.  It is located in Scott, Iowa.  Like the others, it was renovated in 1995.

Along the way to Holliwell, we came across a nice pond with a Blue Heron ( I love these birds!!) and a nice windmill shot.

We didn’t have time to get to the Hogback Covered Bridge or the Cutler-Donahoe Bridge, but we did make it to the Imes Covered Bridge in St. Charles, Iowa.  This bridge was built in 1877 and actually moved three times.  It was moved to its current location in 1977.  this is the oldest of the remaining covered bridges, though it was also renovated in 1997.  It is 81 feet in length.

From St. Charles it was a short jump to I-35 and we went north into Des Moines for the night.  It was a beautiful day going through Iowa.

Road Trip Home from Idaho – Day 3: Glendive, MT thru Enchanted Highway, Mt. Rushmore to Oacoma, SD

South Dakota Badlands

April 1, 2013:  We started the month of April off with a non-foolish bang as we got up fairly early to hit the road towards home, with a detour through North and South Dakota.

This is the route we took on this leg of the trip:


View Larger Map – Glendive, MT to Oacoma, SD

We first took a brief zip around Glendive to catch some of the sights…

Glendive, Montana is surrounded by badlands and there have been many finds of dinosaur bones and tracks in the area, thus the signs, museum, etc.  We went to Makoshika State Park, which is a nice badlands area.  In fact, Makoshika is a Lakota word for “land of bad spirits.”

From Glendive we headed east on I-94 towards North Dakota with a brief stop to get the sign for “Home on the Range”, an unusual sign in the middle of the prairie in North Dakota, east of Beach, ND.  It turns out that Home on the Range is a working Catholic-run ranch for boys and girls ages 12-19, especially those that were abused or come from broken families. It helps them readjust and cope.  Appears to be a great program.

We continued east until we got to Exit 72, which leads to the Enchanted Highway, one of those AWESOME adventure highways with some unique roadside attractions.  I recently did a full blog post just on this highway.  Therefore, I will only post a couple of photos here. Please see the blog post for the details on that portion of this trip.

After the trip down the Enchanted Highway, we arrived in the small town of Regent, home of the Enchanted Highway museum and gift shop, the Enchanted Castle Hotel and a couple of gas stations.  We had hoped to eat lunch there, but nothing was open.  And it was a Monday….oh well…

Still hungry, we decided to move on and head south towards Mt. Rushmore.  We went west on ND Hwy 21 until we got to Hwy 22 and then went south towards South Dakota.  We stayed on Hwy 22 until we got to South Dakota.

We then followed SD Hwy 79 all the way into Newell, South Dakota, which is known as the Sheep Capital of the United States. We meandered into T.J.’s Cafe and Waterin’ Hole in Newell for lunch.  It was almost 3 PM so we were quite hungry.  This unique diner was what we needed. I loved some of the furnishings, as you can see below.

After a nice lunch and some homemade pie for dessert, we were back on the road heading towards Mount Rushmore.  On the way we passed through Sturgis, SD, famed for its annual motorcycle event in August.  I had never been here.  We passed right by the Full Throttle Saloon, claimed to be the World’s Largest Biker Bar and also famed for its TV Show on TRU-TV, which, but the way, I have never watched.

From Sturgis we booked it down to Keystone and to Mt. Rushmore.

We pulled through Keystone, SD at about 5:10 PM on our way to Mt. Rushmore.  As this was the off season, almost everything was closed.  We made it to the National Monument after closing time but still with daylight.  We were able to get up into the parking lot for free and got some good photos before the sunset.

We were thrilled to be able to see Mt. Rushmore.  BY the time we were done it was getting dark.  We headed east from there, passed by the Badlands National Park, by Underwood, South Dakota, home of the World’s SMALLEST Biker Bar, and by Wall Drug (which I have visited in the past – see my post from 2005).  We also passed by the big dinosaur skeleton being led by a human skeleton near Pioneer Village and could barely make it out as it had gotten dark.

Walking the Pet Dino near Exit 170 (Pioneer Village) on I-90. It is on the north of the freeway. I took this in 2005.

We finally got into Oacoma, SD, our stop for the night.  It was another long day, but was lots of fun!! Nothing like a full day of road tripping and seeing the sights and creating the memories!!

A few sites in Southeast Idaho – Idaho Falls and Blackfoot

Potato Museum - Blackfoot
Potato Museum – Blackfoot

While in Rexburg for the last week of March and the first week of April, I had the opportunity to take a couple of trips south to Blackfoot and Idaho Falls, where I was able to catch a few of the interesting sites in the area.  I even caught an amazing quarrel between a Canadian goose and a couple of seagulls.

Idaho Falls

The waterfalls on the Snake River called Idaho Falls
The waterfalls on the Snake River.  Idaho Falls, as they are called, were once rapids on the Snake

Idaho Falls is a nice little town at the base of the foothills with the Snake River running through the middle of town.  It is currently the largest city in Southeastern Idaho with a population of nearly 57,000 and a metro population of a little over 136,000.  Like Rexburg, it has a large LDS (Mormon) population and a large temple.

Carved Wooden Indian - by Peter Toth
Carved Wooden Indian              (Nov. 1980) – by Peter Toth

One of my trip highlights was being able to see the large Indian wood carving by Hungarian-born and American immigrant sculptor Peter Toth.  Over the years Toth has created at least one of these huge statues (all different) for each state in the United States.  All of them collectively (at least 74 are documented) are known as the “Whispering Giants”.  I hope to be able to begin my quest to visit many more over the years.  Many of the Whispering Giants can been here.

Located in North Tourist Park, one of over 70 from around the US

The Indian depicted above is a combination of tribes native to Idaho. This sculpture was  the 37th state in the series. As with all of his works, Toth did the work free of charge with supplies and materials donated by local businesses. The local Chamber of Commerce hosted the dedication program. Governor John V. Evans accepted and dedicated the sculpture.

Ironically, just north of the Whispering Giant is a unique shop called Wild West Designs Antler Art.  They have many interesting home furnishings inside, but it was the unique wooden carvings outside that caught my eye!!

The giant bear above adorns a place in the front of the shop.  This wooden grizzly is about 16 feet tall.

Further into town I came across a piece of nostalgia in Scotty’s Hamburgers.  This iconic drive-in has been around Idaho Falls since the 1960s.

Unfortunately, I didn’t have the chance to eat there since they were closed on Sunday and that was my day to drive thru town.

Idaho Falls Temple of the LDS Church
Idaho Falls Temple of the LDS Church

Like Rexburg, the crown jewel for Idaho Falls is the large LDS Temple.  Dedicated in September 1945 it was the first LDS temple in Idaho and is one of the older LDS temples, currently the 8th oldest in operation (see entire chronology here).  It was the only temple dedicated between 1927 and 1955.  Originally, it did not have an angel Moroni on top.  This was added by helicopter in September 1983.

The area around the temple is a beautiful riverine green space — a haven for relaxation and ducks, geese and seagulls.

As I drive around looking at the wonderful river sights, I came across some folks feeding the birds…it was a virtual crowd of ducks and geese and seagulls.  I was quite amazed to see them all congregated together fighting over the morsels of bread coming their way.

But, the real excitement came when a goose got a big piece of a baguette and was then attacked by a couple of hungry seagulls.  I had never seen anything like this so I had the camera on fast snap to get the following sequence of shots.

Idaho Falls still has a number of nostalgic locations.   The Bonneville, an old Chinese restaurant, appears to be closed now, but the sign remains.  I love old neon signs like these.  This one is especially classy with the dot on the I being a star.

And who can resist the Yummy House?  I had to, they were closed.

As I typically do, if I see a Wind Farm, I tend to go there.  I am so excited to see natural energy in action and the wind farms are always like a giant flower garden blooming out of the ground.  The Wolverine Creek Wind Farm is housed in the foothills west of Idaho Falls, in the town of Iona.  There are 43 turbines, which can be seen from Rexburg on a clear day.  This site produces about 64.5 Mw of power.

I was excited for the chance to get to Blackfoot, Idaho so that I could visit the famous Idaho Potato Museum. So, on a trip to Pocatello, accompanied by a business partner from Rexburg, we stopped in Blackfoot on the way home for a quick look see.

When we arrived it appeared to be snowing, but I actually think it was potato flakes falling from the sky to welcome me!!

Like other similar museums have visited in the past (like the Mustard Museum in Wisconsin, the JELLO museum in New York, the SPAM Museum in Wisconsin…to name a few), the focus of this museum was a certain food, in this case, the potato.  During the visit I learned a great deal about potato farming in Idaho, I learned that Sweet Potatoes are not related to a potato and I saw the Guinness Certified “World’s Largest Potato Chip”, which is housed in the museum and was created by Pringle’s in June 1991.

For fun, we took a drive around the small town to see another giant, a few murals and finally get a lunch at one of the oldest drive-ins (and eat ins) in town.

Giant Waitress

This former Uniroyal Gal (there are still of a few of these around the country) turned waitress adorns the front entrance to Martha’s Cafe. She has gone through a couple of changes.  She was formerly blonde (in 2011) and actually held a plate (see photos on this blog).

As with many of my town visits around the country, I also take a liking to wall art and murals.  I found a whole set of murals on the side of the wall near the fairgrounds.

Finally, we stopped at a great place for lunch.  I had a Philly Cheese Steak sandwich and almost ordered a Rice Krispy Treat Milk Shake!!

Rupe's Burgers
Rupe’s Burgers – Blackfoot, Idaho

Rupe’s Burgers is like so many other lat 60s/early 70s drive-in diners.  Great greasy not good for you food…and lots of it.  This one opened in 1962 as an A & W Root Beer.  It was open thru 1978 when the Rupe family sold it.  The place became R & B’s thru 1986 and then went out of business.  In 1987 the Rupe family bought it back.  The place seats about 100 inside and has room for 20 cars outside.

I finished off a couple of different visits and after a two and a half week stay in Idaho, it was time to get back on the road home to Kentucky!!
