Making steady progress. Paul has home turf in sight!

Black River, still in Minnesota

Mississippi River, Minnesota

Some colourful hills

More farms, really nice, well kept properties

Interesting church

The road just goes on and on. Especially after 31 days of traveling along it.

Interesting clouds. Get the feeling that the weather can change very quickly here?

Interesting name. Never did find out the reason behind it.

Interesting sculpture

More clouds, more grasslands, more road stretching out ahead of us.

More wind mills, but no wind.

Welcome to South Dakota!

Missouri River

Hay bales. Pretty exciting, huh. Don't worry; South Dakota and Wyoming get really interesting.

Really interesting to follow the changing landscape of your travels. And now you are getting into areas where I have been before.
I can help you out with the name Blue Earth. It is a translation of the Dakota (or maybe Lakota) name for one of the rivers in Minnesota: Mahkato (mahka=earth, to=blue or green - there is no distinction between green and blue in Sioux languages). The name was given to the river because of the greenish clay that was found on its bank not far from the river mouth. The clay provided pigment for a green colour which was used for painting rawhide, but also for war paint. One county in Minnesota is named for the River. I guess your rest stop was in Blue Earth county.
