A mini vacation spent in Medora and Dickinson. This after a week with Clare, returning her home.

Monday afternoon we spent the afternoon in Medora. We started at the South Unit Visitor Center at the Theodore Roosevelt National Park (TRNP) where mom got her life-time pass. We toured the Roosevelt's Maltese Cross Cabin before returning back to Medora.
The North Dakota Cowboy Hall of Fame was interesting. Suzanne and I were looking for 'Rags' Rasmussen and Clare was looking for Buffalo Alice.
The Joe Ferris General Store reminded me of my grandmother's store. We cooled down at the Marquis De Mores Ice Cream Parlor; then visited a number of gift shops. Paul and Sean joined us outside the Harold Schafer Heritage Center. Sean joined me at Cowboy Lyle's Candy store were I purchased Gilliam Candy Old Fashioned Root Beer Sticks. Fortunately there were no swarms of bees to chase me today. We at at the Badlands Pizza & Saloon.
Monday evening we toured the TRNP. Mom and I stopped to trek a couple trails: Skyline Vista and Buck Hill. The view was spectacular, the light was excellent, and the photography fun. I made mom stop almost every minute or so to view the badlands and the Little Missouri River.

Tuesday morning: Suzanne, Clare, Char, and I toured Dickinson. We started by walking the public gardens at the NDSU Dickinson Research Extension Center. We looked at the flowers, plants, trees, and rodents.
Next stop was the Dickinson Museum Center. The hall of Dinosaurs had plenty of fossils and displays. They also had an interesting collection of rocks and minerals.
We took a guided tour of the Prairie Outpost Park: Germans from Russia Stone House, Shipley School, Gorham Store and Post Office, Petrified Tree Stumps, The Binek Coal Mine. Then it was back to the…
We had German Ruebens, French Dips, and Kuchen at the Wurst Stop before leaving for Fargo.
