Berlin Wall in South Dakota
On a road trip to see Mount Rushmore you probably wouldn't expect to come across the Berlin Wall. In Rapid City, South Dakota however, you'll find two 12 foot slabs of the original wall that divided East and West Berlin on display in Memorial Park located downtown. Surrounded by two tank traps, we visited the site on a rainy afternoon during the final day of our road trip. The gray day only seemed to further emphasize the bleak history behind the landmark.
