28. June 2000, Rapid City to Jamestown
we drive northeast from South Dakota to North Dakota. Leaving Rapid City,
which is about 100 kilometres south of the geographical centre of the
U.S., we drive through Buffalo Gap and Badlands, typical "Wild West"
sceneries. And indeed, as we continue driving to Pierre we are informed
by a street sign that some of the scenes for the film "Dances with
Wolves" were shot here. Pierre lies on the Missouri river and further
north the Oahe Dam provides electricity from the Missouri. In the late
afternoon we cross into North Dakota and arrive in Jamestown, a small
town which can claim to have the world's largest buffalo, a concrete sculpture
weighing 60 tons and the National Buffalo Museum.
Overall 1 hour 37 minutes penalty
