We Took the Scenic Route
These are the more scenic shots from our trip to North Dakota. The house in the forefront below is the home that my Great Grandparents built and where they raised my grandmother and her 9 siblings. It only had 3 bedrooms.
This country church's cemetery is where my paternal grandfather's family is buried. It was nice to "visit" everyone.

These oil pumps are the latest additions to the North Dakota prairies, bringing an early retirement for many hard-working farmers.
