A Drone Flew Over Rural Fields In South Dakota And Captured Mesmerizing Footage

One of the things we love best about South Dakota is the way members of our communities come together during times of need. In September, 2017 volunteers contributed more than 1,000 man hours to cover huge silage piles for a fundraiser for Christian education. The piles cover around 2,500 acres and consist of 54,000 tons of silage. A total of 55,000 tires was used to secure the humongous tarps.

This video was posted on YouTube.com by Trevor Kollis. It’s a testament to the giving nature of South Dakotans, and a pretty jaw-dropping sight when you realize how large these silage piles are!

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/

Do you have any stories of South Dakotans coming together as a community to volunteer their time? We’d love to hear them in the comments!
