Road Trip Chronicles: Minnesota to North Dakota

20130517-081310.jpg

The urge to travel is in my blood. My pioneer ancestors crosses the plains. My conquistador ancestors settled California. I can’t help it. It’s in my genes, this urge to explore.

This weekend Paul & I traveled to North Dakota to visit his parents. Yes, we are up to that point in our relationship. He met mine three months ago when he surprised me for Valentine’s Day.

So, not only do I get to see a new part of this amazing country, but I also get to meet the people who will likely become my in-laws.

There are so many amazing things to see. The changing landscape & how it is similar to other landscapes. The world’s largest bison (or buffalo), and a water tower with a smile.

If you don’t get out there and drive around, you won’t see these things. It’s a testament to the American personality. The quirky, the interesting and the sometimes silly.

Yes, there are negative things about this country, but focusing on them is not my point. I want to appreciate the positive. Let the news folks spew out the negative. I’ll keep posting pictures of quirkiness.
