Exploring North Dakota

I don’t even remember the last time I went to North Dakota. Maybe it was during middle school when we drove to Glacier National Park? Either way, a return to the state was long over due! After leaving Devil’s Tower in Wyoming, we made the four hour drive up to Medora, North Dakota. If you enjoy big blue skies, lots of space and hundreds of miles in between towns, that drive is perfect for you! […]

The Best Murals in North & South Dakota

We recently returned from a fun week long road trip through North and South Dakota. I’d been to both states before, but I honestly remember nothing of North Dakota and hadn’t been to South Dakota since high school. Most people go for the National Parks, which was also our reason for going too. But while we were out there, I discovered a pretty rich public art scene in both states. As you know, I love […]
