Apr 16, 2010 - Belfield, North Dakota

Today we visited the Theodore Roosevelt National Park in North Dakota. We weren’t sure what to expect and we were surprised when we got here. The land for miles coming north was just endless grasslands and rolling hills and when we got to the park we were stunned to see this infinite area of buttes, tablelands and valleys in front of us. It’s as if all this time we were driving on top of a mesa and we finally came to the edge and were able to look down. They call this land the badlands of North Dakota, and much like the badlands we visited...

Jun 6, 2009 - SNOW!

Saturday, June 6th: Teddy Roosevelt to Belfield (20 miles) I woke up about 6 AM, noted that it was still raining, then dozed to about 8, when Bill got up.

I changed the breakfast menu from scrambled eggs with spinach to...

Aug 21, 2007 - Belfield, North Dakota

In Fort Peck we find an historic hotel where we have breakfast. We are the only two customers and are waited on by a staff of four. A framed Life Magazine cover is on the wall that shows the Fort Peck Dam. I've seen this picture before but who knew it was here. The Missouri River parallels Route 2 as we head further east but it is too far from the road for us to see. Instead we continue to see trains, grasslands and antelope. In Williston, North Dakota we finally cross over the Missouri River as it continues east and we head south. Our new...
