Harry's Snowdome Collection -continued"
The Corn Palace
- Almost everyone from Chicago has been to the Badlands of
South Dakota. If you're a long distance driver, you'll pass by Mitchell on
the first day. The Corn Palace is a famous sight here. The front of the building
will have a mural made out of corn. It's changed every year, so you could
come back annually. I would if I could.
- After you leave the Badlands Park, you stop at Wall Drug
and get yourself a bumper sticker and one or two Wall Drug snowdomes. Then
it's on to Mount Rushmore. When we got there, it was completely overcast.
All we could see in the viewing area was fog. We did see several tour busses
full of disappointed Europeans, who must have been on a 5 day whirlwind tour
of the Amercian West. So I bought the snowdome here to see what I had missed.
The next day, we came back to the park and found a beautiful clear day to
view the mountain carvings.
The City of Lights
- I've been to Paris, Illinois and I have been to Paris,
France. The city in Europe has a number of different snow domes. This is one
of the simpler ones. I sure wish there was a dome from Paris, Illinois, but
it would probably show a pig.
- The second largest French speaking city in the world is ....?
Oui, it is in Canada and Montreal is the city. Indeed, most of the people
in Quebec speak mainly French.
