On the west side of Clark on Highway 212 is a group of unusual items. The creator calls them conversation pieces. He says they are not art because he is not an artist. It keeps growing and changing. He says he has lots of ideas for other pieces but no time. See my traveloge for more pictures.

Ice Fishing is very popular in South Dakota. Every year there are many Ice Fishing Tournaments. This is the lake by the McCain Potatoe warehouse east of Clark. You can see many people braving the cold to fish. The Ice should be at least a foot deep before they drive vehicles on but every year some one goes thru the ice becauce they couldn't wait. I think there was a tournament going on when these pictures were taken. They have a contest on the most fish and the biggest.
Equipment: Lots of warm clothes and plenty of liquid antifreeze for your body are needed to ice fish.
Clark has several museums. One is run by the local historical society and includes the Clark train depot along with several other buildings. it is located US Hiway 212 about one block west of the main business street.
