Free day at our National Park!

April 22, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

This weekend marked a fun time in the National Parks of our country. This weekend was free entry into all the National Parks so I decided to take a trip into our only National Park in my home state of North Dakota. What is the name of that park you ask? Why it is Theodore Roosevelt National Park. Our past president, happens to be my favorite president by the way, spent some time in his youth living in this area when the park was relatively unexplored. It also sits along a popular attraction for the locals in this state called Medora. If you have not been to these parks you really should take the time to visit them. Medora has some good historical buildings, a fun musical and the ever popular tourist shops for your visiting pleasure. Theodore National Park has a south and a north entrance to drive along and see some beautiful scenery, best seen at sunrise and sunset for your best photos, and some great wildlife on or near the roadways. I prefer to take the north entrance myself. I feel it has more to offer than the south entrance in my opinion but you will have to drive up highway 85 for a bit to get to it. It is worth your time though.

This weekend the buffalo were out for their photo opportunity so I obliged them with some of my time and took a few pictures of them. This curvy road also took me to some amazing overlooks to see the beauty of the northern entrance with one spot having an overlook tower for the park from the early days. So, if you fancy a look at these pictures find your way to the "North Dakota", "Wildlife" and "People" albums to see the pictures taken from this weekends trip...
