The last bit of my road trip I went to Copper Falls and Timms Hill. Copper falls is considered one of the best state park in all of Wisconsin with its scenic falls:
After leaving North Dakota, I went in search of the source of the Mississippi and found it at Lake Itasca . As always I put my flag up at the headwaters and claimed all the lands that the Mississippi and its tributaries drain for the Empire of the Glorious Bob.

Next stop on the road trip was Badlands National Park in South Dakota with its amazing Limestone formations. Plenty of wildlife in the park as well.
After visiting some landmarks in the Black Hills, I went to nearby Custer State Park , famous for its recreational activities and its herd of Bision. Didn't see any Bison but I did summit the high point of South Dakota at Harney Peak.
Of course, there is a nice picture of the peak tower:
First real stop in South Dakota is in the Black Hills national forest. Mount Rushmore and Crazyhorse are both there as well as many other attractions.
