After a stop at Palisades State Park we drove on to Sioux Falls to walk around Falls Park. Once again there was quite a bit of water flowing in the Big Sioux River.


On our drive back from the Black Hills we stopped at Sioux Falls. One of our favorite places to visit in Sioux Falls is Falls Park. It had rained most of the night and there was a slight mist when we arrived at the park. Fortunately we had about an hour to look around before heading back to the car. We had just reached the car when the skies opened up.

We spent the night in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. The next morning was dreary but we decided to drive down to Falls Park to get some photos of the waterfalls. It was dark enough that the lights were still on in the park.




I had seen a video of kids doing extreme sports at Falls Park and I love waterfalls so we decided to stop in Sioux Falls to spend some time at Falls Park. It was more spectacular than I imagined. There was a good flow of water over the falls.Falls-Park-14-5-_3746

We spent some time walking around of the falls and had lunch at the Sioux Falls Light and Power Company which overlooks the falls. A nice place for lunch and a nice view of the falls. It’s on the left of this photo.Falls-Park-14-5-_3758

We also walked along the river to downtown to see how Sioux Falls was taking advantage of the river as a gathering place and magnate to draw people to the downtown area. What they have accomplished so fare is very impressive. The still need to remove some of the industrial area along the river.
