~Adventure Tour Express~


Adventures take different turns sometimes.  We were returning from a family reunion in Colorado and a visit to my mothers in Montana when we decided to take a side trip.  We were certainly pleasantly surprised by what we saw in Mitchell, South Dakota.  The Corn Palace truly is a palace decorated with corn...It is amazing and very lovely!  It would never have occurred to me to embellish a building in this way, but it really works!

It's corn, every bit of it.

Please share with us any surprise or exciting unexpected side trips you have had.  No adventure is to mundane...Life is an adventure!!!  Link your adventure below so we can all enjoy!
Thanks be to God!


  1. That is one amazing place. I would enjoy visiting there. Thanks for sharing.

  2. All that corn is amazing. Truly a corn palace

  3. What an unusual but interesting place. I will look it up on the web and learn more about it, thank you, Jackie in Surrey, UK.

  4. Now that is interesting. How often do they replace the corn cobs?

  5. I've heard of this! Isn't it amazing? Can you imagine the patience it took to assemble it all? And it seems I read somewhere that it's redone every year. Very cool.

  6. wow. i was going to say it looks corny ... but that joke would have been corny!

    don't you just love all these quirky things scattered across america: a corn palace in SD, a lobster race in SC, the biggest ball of yarn ... in fact, visiting all these places would make a fun, summer adventure.

    something to think about here ...
