We were not expecting to find this Cathedral in Rapid City. But it was quite a delightful visit. The architecture is superb, and the whole experience is very spiritual. It is very low-key, including the wild turkeys running free on the lawn.

This is a beautiful replica of the Borgund church in Laerdal, Norway. Admission is free but donations are encouraged. They are open From 8AM to 8PM. There is an evening worship service at 7:30PM. The gift shop sells mostly Norwegian items/souvenirs. The architectural details are very interesting!
