We spent days driving through this unscenic scenery

Flying South sculpture

These sculpture are HUGE!





Teddy Roosevelt & friends


Tinn "Ma"

We spent Sunday driving to Regent, ND to see the "Enchanted Highway." The highway is called this because of the giant tin sculptures which appear every few miles along the route. You can imagine David's excitement when I told him we were going to see the artwork! I tried to calm him down by telling him that I could make wallet size prints so he could show all his friends. I think this did the trick because he was much quieter when we got into the car.

Anyway, the drive was definitely worth it--not only because of the sculptures but also because we saw dozens and dozens of pheasants in the fields. Although we grew up in the San Joaquin Valley where pheasants were plentiful, we had never seen so many in a single day. One field had 5-7 roosters feeding in one spot! They are such beautiful birds.

We left windy North Dakota today (Monday) and are now in Hardin, Montana. Tomorrow we will visit the Little Big Horn National Monument site. One of the great things about traveling with a teacher and history buff is that he can tell me the history of whatever place we are going to visit. I have learned a lot of history over the years.

Will post more photos tomorrow night when we return to camp.

We are going to Yellowstone from here but haven't decided what we will do after that. We hate to go home but that may be what happens if we can't think of anything else to do. Our favorite camp spot in Yellowstone closes on Sept. 28 so we will see what we can come up with.

Thanks for taking the time to read about our trip. Wish you all were here!
