Today was a day of adventure. Let us go to a place and down a road we have never heard of before. What better place to do that than east of the Bismarck area. If you take a drive on any of the state or county roads here in North Dakota and see a gravel road you have not been down before... take it!! You just do not know what you are going to bump into along the way if you do so.
Today we drove down highway 1806 and found some dirt roads along that route and found some run down windmills and cattle to take photos of. We wish we could have gotten closer to the cattle since it was calving season but we took what we could get on that one. Thinking we were on a roll we headed out even further east and found a gravel road coming off of highway 83 south and made our way to Braddock. This town is as small as it gets and people know when you aren't from around here... if you know what I mean. :-)
We spent some time in that town and on a whim decided to take the gravel road going north out of the town. We found a old location with buildings from over a hundred years ago. Like I said before people know when you are not from there and a couple gentlemen came up on us and talked to us telling us the history and what was sitting there in front of us. There is actually a thatching event every September there and I have never heard of it... and I have lived here a great deal of my life.
You just never know what you are going to find so if you have the time take a chance and go down that road you know nothing about. You may be surprised at what you find down that road. :-)
