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.
