A Photo Journey: The Enchanted Highway, Little Missouri National Grasslands & Theodore Roosevelt National Park

Last fall, I drove to the other side of North Dakota where I detoured along the The Enchanted Highway.  I spent the evening at the Rough Riders Hotel in Medora where I was surprised to feast on prawns the size of my palm.  Although this trip didn’t give me anything tangible to bring back with me, something inside of me just grew larger and richer.

There was something exhilerating and eerie about feeling really and truly alone as I stood on the top of rolling prairie hills.  I wandered amidst the shadows of the giant sculptures as the wind whistled through the metal.

In the spirit of summer roadtrips and exploration, I am sharing some of my favorite photos from my journey.  We plan to return in late summer or early fall.
