Sioux Falls is highly underrated. If this city wore a t-shirt, it would say “Go by, mad world.” Laid back and getting on with itself, this place.
So Jack and I took it easy and slow. We idled along the sculpture walk and went to the Falls in daylight and at dusk, took in a farmer’s market, and ambled contentedly through the day.
Surrounded by Pokemon hunters. :] In the hotel, at the Falls, along the sculptures (which according to the hunters each had a critter). Pop over to my FB page to see an evening video of a group we came upon as we walked back to the hotel. I swear, it’s more fun to watch the hunters than hunt the creatures.
The sculpture walk has been going for about 13 years, and every year they have a people’s choice and a best of show. Jack and I voted in the people’s choice this year. The girl in the reading ring was a people’s choice from 2009. All the previous people’s choices are on display in permanent places. It’s really a gorgeous morning, wandering up and down the main and side streets taking them in.
Here are the photos we took in Sioux Falls at the Walk and at the Falls. It is lovely city and we’ve had a restful time.
AND THEN WE WENT TO THE FALLS. GLORIOUS!
You can just see the train starting across the tracks above the Falls in this one.
St Joseph’s Cathedral across the river.
Some people kayaked by as we were walking back to the hotel along the river. They were pokemon hunting and pulled over a couple of times to photo or race up the bank while the other one held the kayaks. Hysterical.
A peaceful ending to a happy day.
