NORTH DAKOTA

Well, the first day was a very pleasant drive and we made the first 365 miles in good time. The weather was great except for about 45 minutes of rain.
I hope we got rain back home too, as we are very dry.  The scenery in Minnesota was as usual; lush green trees, beautifully groomed fields of waving corn and beans, pretty lakes, rolling hills, and colorful flowers decorating the ditches along the roadway.  The scenery after we hit North Dakota was.....
....well, it was North Dakota.  Utility poles instead of trees, rolled bales in the ditches, and flat land as far as the eye can see.  But, we checked into our motel and then picked up our son, daughter-in-law, and grandson, Sam for a little visit and an early supper, so it was worth it . 

We have over 600 miles to do tomorrow, so I won't be staying up late to check out the supermoon tonight, as much as I'd like to.  Our next stop is in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada.

We are one day closer to Alaska!

I've never been to Minnesota but it must be beautiful. We tried to see the super moon tonight but it was too cloudy. Hope tomorrow is another good travel day.

North Dakota just never changes, does it? :) The super moon is gorgeous, but you'll be seeing so many other gorgeous things in the next month.

haha, Marge, compared to this corner of MN, ND is very hilly. The kids always joke that they are on a roller coaster once we get west of the Valley.

It's all in perspective, I suppose...

Since I've never seen ND, I'm enjoying these photos. Have always wanted to see all that flat land that you can see so much earth and sky.

You're making great time!!
