We drive through downtown Rapid City which features bronze statues of all but the last two U.S. Presidents, as well as the historic Alex Johnson Hotel and the Prairie Edge Native American Store. Then we drive over to the Civic Center to see a display of pieces of the Berlin Wall and the Rose Gardens. As we drive into the west side of Rapid City we will see the parks created from the ravages of the 1972 Flood. We will also see Storybook Island, the Formal Gardens, Canyon Lake Park and Stavkirke Chapel In the Hills, which is an exact replica of an 850 Norwegian church with its storehouse and log museum building.
