|Yesterday we put away about 423 miles. I have a photo, below, of a sign in the yard of a Church that was similar to many signs we saw in a certain area in Iowa that were in yards and on barns. I think they are quilt squares.
Driving through western Iowa to Sioux City we turned north to head up through South Dakota. The mix of flatland and rolling hills, like Iowa, continued. Lots and lots of farm country. Fields freshly plowed, very few with any small seedlings growing yet. We crossed the Continental Divide in South Dakota. I think the last time we did that we were at a much higher elevation.
When we reached North Dakota there was an unmistakable change in the landscape. Many more trees, fewer crop fields and colder winds. Fewer hills where we were, however far to the west I could see a continuous line of hills. But, more only flatland where we were.
We stopped several times which made our day of driving a bit longer. John was not feeling well but he's ok, now.
I can't really tell you anything about Fargo, where we are at the moment. Our motel was very near where we entered the city and once we got in our room we did not leave it. I ordered Chinese food that was delivered. Not the best I've ever had but the worst. The population of Fargo is around 90,000 so it's a fairly good-sized town. We both slept well last night. We bring our own pillows whenever we can and I think that helps us sleep.
Today we are traveling to Miles City, Montana and this will be our longest day of driving on the entire trip. We had planned on staying in Glendive, Montana but the motel rates were high and the one motel we wanted did not have any rooms available.
Here's a few photos from yesterday:
