We started from home some time before noon on Saturday and drove north to South Yankton area. The first stop was at the Corps of Discovery Welcome Center in South Yankton, from were we took few pictures of Missouri Valley.
We also stopped at the Gavin's Point Dam on the Missouri river. Then we crossed the river (drove on the dam to South Dakota Side) and came back into Nebraska by crossing the river again on Chief Standing Bear Memorial bridge, Bon Homme, SD.
Around 5:40PM we reached the small town Verdel in Nebraska - population 58. This is one of the "endangered" small towns in this area of the country due to people migrating to other cities seeking better lives, jobs, etc., etc. We did not see a single person in the town although it looked like there were inhabited homes (trailer-homes) there. Most buildings were ruins, hammered by weather and invaded by vegetation. After taking few pictures, we started to drive along. Around 7PM we reached Monowi, the smallest town in Nebraska - population 1.
You can see some more pictures from our tirp in Sam's web site and my Flickr profile (in few days time).
