Friday Photo: Heavy punishment

Knoxville, Tennessee (April 2009)

At Chili’s restaurant, you can park right by the door. But only for 10 minutes. After that, you’re in trouble.

Friday Photo: Wall Drug

November 26, 2010

Wall, South Dakota (August 2010)

Near Mt. Rushmore is a tourist trap town of Wall, South Dakota. Wall’s claim to fame is Wall Drug, supposedly the largest drug store in America. We were warned that it was pointless to go but we went anyway just to check it out, and indeed, it’s not even really a drug store. It’s a large building that houses several different businesses under its roof – a mini-mall, basically. False advertising!

Friday Photo: Black Hills bison

November 19, 2010

Black Hills, South Dakota (August 2010)

A massive group of a couple hundred bison likes to hang out near the Norbeck Visitor Center in the Black Hills of South Dakota. They are not bothered by your puny human vehicles and will wander around as if you’re not even there, as this shot from the front seat of the van shows.

Friday Photo: Fur trade museum

November 12, 2010

Chadron, Nebraska (August 2010)

There’s a museum in the middle of nowhere in western Nebraska dedicated to the fur trade. Unfortunately it was closing just as we arrived, so we only got to see the outside.

Friday Photo: Giant Jesus

November 5, 2010

Sioux City, Iowa (August 2010)

In Sioux City there’s this religious organization with giant 30-foot-high statues of Jesus and Mary. It’s hard to get perspective in this shot, but note how the statue is taller than the trees behind it.
