Off the Beaten Path: Lake Oahe

Oahe…pronounced “Oh ah hee”.

Lake Oahe is just outside of Pierre, South Dakota.  It is a huge lake with some really high bluffs overlooking a long dam.  There are some beautiful picnic areas and lots of places to get out and enjoy the view.

When M was out here for work, he spent a lot of time driving a combine around Lake Oahe.  So for him this was a nostalgic stop.  He wanted to see it again, so we added it to the agenda at the last minute.

I didn’t get a lot of pictures here.  We also didn’t spend a long time since this was an unscheduled, “while we’re here” stop.  But it was pretty and we got some fresh air.

Then back on the road to see some history.
