We left La Crosse at 7 a.m. and started our long journey to South Dakota. On our way to Pine Ridge we made a stop at Akota Lakota Cultural Center. At the cultural center we got to take a look at the Lakota culture and there were even some interactive parts. We got to put together a quilt and look into some lockers that had clothes from an old school. Our next stop after the cultural center was the Prairie Dog Ranch where we got the chance to feed some of the prairie dogs peanuts. They would come up to your hand and take the nuts and then run away. Then we finished the day by taking a hike in the Badlands and coming to the Prairie Ranch Café for dinner.
