Lost to time...

So we took a drive and it became an epic Saturday adventure to our surprise. I would say 80% of the day was either going through thunderstorms or driving along side them. There were times that we could not see very well as we were driving and then the sky's would open up again for us. We wanted to see a site that was featured on "Ghost towns of North Dakota's" website near Killdeer, ND. It is a state historical site called "Hutmacher Farmstead" and took some effort to find even though it turned out to be a lot easier than it originally seemed to be to us. We followed the map provided by "North Dakota Legendary's" website, they really need to have a more accurate location markers on their website map, and it took us to a farmers field southwest of Killdeer. The road was less than a gravel road... more like a Jeep road or farmers work road that happened to be very muddy on our day of thunderstorms. Once we threw a good share of mud with our truck we decided to call the Preservation society and they informed us to stay on the newly paved road of 114th Ave SW just west of Killdeer going south from Hwy 200. As it turned out if you drove a little further down the road we were on the site was on the right side of the road no more than two miles away from where we originally were.

This site was a complete surprise and is in a current state of repair by the Preservation society. It shows a lot of historical facts on some information boards and the buildings are really amazing to look at. It was like taking a step back in time and a lot of fun to photograph and Vlog opportunities for my YouTube channel. I will be working on the pictures over the next few days and when they are done please take a look at them on this website photo albums. This was a truly incredible place to visit and I recommend everyone to do the same if you have the time to drive out there...
