Tomah, WI, to Mitchell, SD

Tuesday, August 7. 2012 -  We left Tomah at around 8:15 AM with a quick move from the hotel to I-90 W.  The Microtel was a good deal.  The breakfast was about normal for "free breakfast":  red delicious apples for fruit, waffle maker, instant oatmeal, and a selection of three dry cereals.   They did step it up a notch by having boiled eggs!  The room was small, but very comfortable.

Not long after we started our route we passed into Minnesota. Impressions:  The barns are beautiful!  Little traffic on I-90 W.  We lunched at in Worthington, MN, at a Subway so I could say I'd "been" to Minnesota.  Then South Dakota.  Impressions:  More traffic.  Lots of motorcycles coming and going.  (The annual Sturgis Cycle Rally is this week http://www.sturgismotorcyclerally.com/) Speed limit: 75mph. Acres of sunflowers!  Beautiful!

We pulled into Mitchell, SD, at around 3 PM and checked into the Kelly Inn and Suites.

While Wayne caught up on the day's business I took a walk on a walking trail right across from the hotel.  It was a little warm!  90 degrees here.  For supper we chose take-out from Corona Village Mexican restaurant.  It hit the spot!  Tomorrow we zoom on through South Dakota and land in Wyoming....
