We arrived in Minnesota Thursday afternoon and drove straight to the "prairie," as Mark calls it. Butterfield is very close to Walnut Grove, home of the Laura Ingalls Wilder Museum, of Little House on the Prairie fame.
We stayed in a Super 8. This was the view from our window. It was a quiet room. You can see there is little traffic, even though it's a major highway. We are so used to California traffic that it is always kind of weird to me.

Later in the afternoon, we took a tour of the school he attended. It is a pre-K through 12th grade now, housed in one building. Although I have been to Butterfield quite a few times, and have even attended several reunions, I had never once been inside the school.
We all decided we didn't really want to try the food from this booth, although it might have been very tasty, but marketing and signage can be important...
