Getting to the badlands:
It wasn't just flat.
We got it repaired quickly, and arrived at our campsite. Soon after we left for the Medora Musical!
That blond guy in the middle? Amazing stage presence! He was hamming it up, grinning and really DOING the dance moves. Not just ... doing ... the dance moves. I love it when people do that!!
This fiddler played so fast it's amazing her fingers didn't fall off! She got the most cheers of the night. :)
I get such a thrill from the stage and shows. They just makes me so happy!
The next day we traveled to the North unit of the Theodore Roosevelt National Park.
There were oil trucks everywhere on the way!
At the campground we got invaded by bison! o_O
Strolling through the campground like they owned the place...
^The screen on my camper window.
Right as we were walking up to a trail for a hike, a guy was just leaving the trail. As he walked past, he told us that he had seen a rattle snake in the weeds right next to the path!
Ummm .... *gulp*
We spotted buffalo hair on the trail! Wild buffalo and snakes on our trail. Niiice.
Still, I'm thankful there is still a part of North Dakota that is wild enough that you have to fear snakes. Call me crazy, but I love natural places.

The next day we went on yet another hike. The sun warmed the clover and filled the air with a thick summery scent.
Prairie dog town!
This guy was very friendly!
And now, after those bazillion pictures, I'll leave you with one of my very favorites from that gorgeous sunset...
Which ones do you like?
