From North Dakota to Great Falls Montana

The Teddy Roosevelt National Park was such a gorgeous loop drive, with great sightings of buffalo, prairie dogs, wild horses and deer.  It is only about an hour long drive, even with pull-outs to view the vast wild scenes along the way.

Buffalo, wild horses, and wild storms.

The drive from North Dakota to Montana is where I started to wonder about why in the world we have cities jammed with people when there are 500 miles of of absolutely nothing along Hwy. 200 from North Dakota through Montana to Great Falls.

I think it would be great to see people load up their families and pioneer their way out to Montana, put in the infrastructure needed and settle down in all this open land!

Definitely time to run for cover...or as in my case, ride as fast as I could toward the light, and away from the black clouds everywhere.  My plan worked, with only minimal rain hitting me, and no hail, thunder, lightening or tornadoes!  Yay.

Then of course, one can't miss out on The Sip-N-Dip lounge in Great Falls, MT.  Piano Pat has been playing there forever, sort of a twist on Johnny Cash, polka style!  Hilarious good fun with a Mai Tai or two!  And MERMAIDS swim behind a glass wall in this bar!  Who could ask for more???
