The flyover country of North Dakota is truly unique. Two-track trails across the northern prairies can lead to wetlands and waterfowl, pheasants and sharp-tail grouse, and a mix of whitetail deer and mule deer, with even a few antelope thrown in.
The most amazing find was a remnant of the first settlers who braved this wild land and used the abundant fieldstones to piece together houses and other buildings. The foundations still remain and the intricate workmanship which involved fitting thousands of pieces of random stone together into a solid, durable building, is amazing. These buildings have resisted the relentless prairie environment and have lasted well past 100 years.
Lots of surprises when you explore the wide prairie on a beautiful fall day.
