I'm headed east again after a successful Holland Grill roadtrip, doing a little work and really enjoying the scenery. I did Yellowstone Park and couldn't get over the natural beauty. Leaving the east entrance, I was determined to stop by Mt. Rushmore in Keystone, SD but went through some very interesting places along the way. This little town is so small that there's really not much about it on the internet. The green sign on the side of the road claims it has a population of "10"--now that's a small town (But believe it or not, it is not even on the list of top 10 smallest US towns. I do know that this town was founded by German Lutherans and they gave it a different name than it has today. Because of the World War going on at the time, the citizens were frightened and paranoid about the name the Germans gave this little burg so they demanded the town be renamed to something more American that would represent an "emblem of liberty" The house in this photo is actually for sale if you're looking to get away from the big city--and the rest of humanity. Where the heck am I?

Emblem, WY--population 10--is the correct answer. The population may be decreasing though. The house in the picture above was for sale according to the internet. Great trip!
