I’m writing to you from the comfy confines of my girlfriend’s condo, known as “The Awesome Unit,” in Calgary. This morning I awoke at the outrageous hour of 3:45am and decided to start driving since I was wide awake. I’m still on east coast time apparently.
Yesterday was quite an adventure. The morning started off normally, with some lounging around at the Super 8 near Fargo, before I started driving west. North Dakota has some of the best scenery along the US route that I took, especially when I got to the badlands near the Theodore Roosevelt National Park.
Since the scenery was so awesome around the park, I decided to wheel in to Medora to gas up and stretch my legs. What I didn’t realize is I was about to drive in to a town that’s built like a town out of an old spaghetti western movie! I expected to see a cowboy come crashing out of some saloon doors at any moment.
I got some photos, which I’ll have up on Flickr in the next day or so. In the meantime, I’m super-tired, so it’s time to get a nap.
