Today we drove over 200 miles, spanning from Southeast Montana into the heart of North Dakota. The drive was primarily hot and flat, and we are on our third day without showering, which means the nugget is not smelling too hot (or us for that matter)!
From the border of North Dakota we are greeted by a landscape that is totally unlike anything that i've ever seen. It is called "The Badlands," and is a type of dry landscape composed of soft sedimentary rocks eroded extensively by wind and water (thank you Wikipedia). Anyway, it makes for a beautiful canyon like scene.
While passing through North Dakota, we stopped at a tiny old-western town called Medora, which Brian had visited as a child.
A little ways outside of Medora, off of Highway I-94, there is a detour called the Enchanted Highway, featuring huge metal sculptures. It was definitely a quirky site, but kept us off the freeway and entertained for a few hours!
Randomly, off the highway, the farmlands were blanketed in snow!
