We stayed a little longer in Dickinson, ND then we had planned. It's a cute little town of about 18,000 people. The economy is booming here because of all the Oil Wells, Natural Gas and Coal mines in the area. North Park Campground is only $16.00 a night (Passport America) and only 2 blocks from Walmart Supercenter with a nail salon and hair salon that Marcie made use of. There is also a mall in town. We walked a block and a half to Freedom Baptist Church last Sunday morning. It's a little church with only about 50 people in attendence, but all very friendly and we felt welcome.

One day we drove the Enchanted Highway, south of I-94, where we saw 32 miles of the world's largest Metal Sculptures. One man has been making these sculptures from scrap metal for the past 18 years and is still making more. The "Geese in Flight" sculpture is in the Guinness World Book of Records as the largest metal sculpture in the world.

Another day we drove to Lake Sakakawea about 50 miles north. It's part of the Missouri River with a dam and power plant. They haven't had much rain here this year, so the lake level is low.
