Entering the Park

Beauty goes on for miles

North Side of Roosevelt National Park

More Scenary

Love the shadows

After leaving the park on our way to Roosevelt National Park, came...

Oil Wells, they have so much of Route 94

Buffalo

Badland

Part of the park drive, 14 miles long

Boulders

Cannon Ball

View from a picnic area

Perfect spot for a mountain cabin

Still looking at the Missouri River

This was built by the CCC in the 1930's

Just a pretty spot

Still the Missouri River, and long arms

Roaming buffalo, they run 30 miles an hour so they warn you...

MORE WOW

OX Bow Overlook, the end of Theodore Roosevelt National Park

More Badlands, Can't figure out when to stop taking pictures

Oil burning off, so much oil


Today we drove over 200 miles to see Little Missouri State Park and the North side of Roosevelt National Park.

A lot of miles and alot of beautiful country.

Driving this area everything south of route 94 is farming, and everything north is OIL WELLS. They have so much oil here and talking to the locals they do not have and have not had any recession. We are seeing construction everywhere. They cannot afford to move the oil if it is under $70/barrel. They haul it out in large tankers. And tankers are moving one after another when you are on the highway. Under ground they estimate 3.65 billion barrels of oil in just one field. We have so many natural resources.
