Hold on to that one, Greg. I have seen opposition to such attractions grow during my lifetime. If this continues, the parks, rather than the animals may become extinct. Maybe this will become a show-and-tell item ;)

Here is an interesting one from one of our road trips...just don't ask me which one :-)  We loved South Dakota!

That's a nice one, Greg. I like the ones where you can make out some of the coin it's rolled on.

I was in South Dakota a few times, but don't recall if I ever saw the Corn Palace. I like the state overall though.

I found a batch of presidential smushed pennies at a local yard sale a bit back...pretty fun, I've just started going through them.  George Washington stamped on a 1962 penny.

A souvenir of a visit to Virginia, I suppose. See also here.
