Finding Nemo

Nemo South Dakota that is!

This tiny town is located about 20 miles outside of Rapid City. My son-in-law took me for a drive to show me this lovely little spot. We didn't have much time so I wasn't able to get out and take my time photographing all the rustic buildings but here are a few shots I did get.

There are a number of rustic cabins
What appears to be an old mine shaft.

One thing that caught my attention was the Jack & Jenny outhouses. They both had the sign that said "MEN ->". Although I realized it is a tourist area and must get very busy when the weather is nice I was surprised to learn that this little town hosts a rather odd winter event. The Nemo500 which is of all things an outhouse race! Click the link to learn more about what Nemo and the Nemo Guest Ranch have to offer.
Now for a couple shots as we were leaving town.

It is a small little place but it sure is pretty!
