August 09 – We were driving through the North Dakota rolling hills and fields of Sunflower when suddenly we looked to the right and saw this spectacular view!!

The Painted Canyon, a part of Theodore Roosevelt National Park.

We stayed one night at the National Park in the far western part of North Dakota. Park admission was FREE with our Golden Age Pass, and camping was only $5 (no hook-ups).

We took the 36 mile loop drive through the Park. Saw plenty of Prairie Dogs in the Prairie Dog Towns.

Saw a token herd of wild horses!

And a herd of Buffalo!

But this one was King of the Hill!!

But most amazing – I was able to see this little Pronghorn in the far distance and yelled for Ken to stop the car!!

We knew we were really in the Bad Lands when we stopped at this overlook!

The Park entrance is in the little town of Medora, ND. We drove in town to get ICE!!
