Trip to the Dakotas - September 1 - 4, 2023

Friday Sept 1, 2023 - found much more than planned enroute to Dickinson, ND

by luck, we found the current center of the US (that's really over 30mi away) this cool bus pulled in as we were leaving next we drive to the corner of WY, MT, SD just follow the fence and climb over the gate and barbed wire back to the car to the actual center of the United States of America seen in a small town (mannequin in the driver's seat) day is done gone the son

Saturday, Sept 2, 2023 - driving around Roosevelt National Park - South Unit

Sunday Sept 3, 2023 Roosevelt NP - North Unit in the morning (smoke from Canadian wildfires obscure a lot)

coincidentally the called out years are the same that Diana's folks were born these guys were The Little Missouri river carves Roosevelt NP Battleship Mountain (behind the Cannonballs)

Sunday Sept 3, 2023 Last minute decision to take an 8 hour drive in the afternoon (we've, now, in 8days visited the geographic center of the continental US, the center of the entire US and the center of North America!)

the flames are scattered all over North Dakota a town sign at the end of our 8hr roundtrip Taps

Monday, Sept 4, 2023 Back to Greeley with some interesting stops

stopped in Belle Fourche, again, to photog some monuments we'd missed Friday
