7/19/12 - Inside Wall Drug in SD; best viewed in the larger sizes to see all the interesting details. Wall Drug is a big tourist attraction in the Badlands area. The owners of the original drug store were having trouble making a go of the business and got the idea to advertise free water. It was a huge hit and, from that modest beginning, the store has grown to be a purveyor of everything tacky that can be imagined. It also markets some very nice things. The store is gigantic, with lots of different sections. I, personally, would not take the time to visit it, knowing what I do now about it, but it attracts thousands of tourists...perhaps, more than are drawn to the Badlands National Park.
Thanks for the comments on my latest shot of the buck elk. Much appreciated!
