Today our ghost town adventures continued. This time we took "Black Pearl" to a town called Crystal Springs. Rumor has it that there was a natural spring fountain there and we wanted to see it. We took our ride there anxious to see what this old town would show us. Once we got there we found a gravel road there to greet us. I was not to happy about riding down it but did it anyway for the sake of the adventure. It was a short gravel section and once we got to the spring we found that someone had vandalized it with graffiti and it was not working in any case. So with this in front of us we took ourselves to what was left of the town of Crystal Springs. We got some good pictures of the two structures that were still there and in our disappointment decided to ride to some other towns in the area to try and make up for it.
We took ourselves to the towns of Streeter, which was much more interesting than we expected, Tuttle and Wing. The last two towns were not much for interest but there was a nice mustard field and an old school house on the outskirts of town. Those two areas took up some of our time and along the way we had a nice ride on the Harley.
So the moral of this blog entry is if you do not find what you set out to find try and alternate route and you may just come to something more interesting or at least worth your time. So, take a look at our "North Dakota Ghost Towns", "People", "Harley Life" & "Floral" albums to see the results.
