In car with laptop perched on my knee in Medora, North Dakota so no writing, just a few pics.
Lots of blue sky to see above all the buttes, nice in springtime with all the grass. This one is typical. Instead of mountains you’re basically in the plains, but rivers cut canyons and leave behind features like this.
Home sweet home for a while, Cottonwood Campground in the south unit, along the Little Missouri River. Has some trees and shade.
Little Missouri valley, location of Cottonwood Campground.
And the pests who wander through freely and make themselves right at home; I suppose that’s fair, we’re the visitors.
Typical scene, from the 27 mile scenic loop in the southern unit. Just hit northern unit today and will do those pics soon, it’s a bit more spectacular, but southern unit is more comfortable and a quick trip to Medora where the comms are.
Unusual erosion features. There are layers of harder rock and softer, so the erosion affects each differently and leaves behind the interesting features.
Great place, esp, pre-season. The trees are just coming out, the daytime temps are warm, but dry, so tolerable. Nighttime temps are good for sleeping.
