Today, as promised, we visited
Theodore Roosevelt National Park.
It is a smallish park that includes badlands geology and a good
assortment of wildlife. We saw wild horses and buffalo among
Before entering the park, we shopped around the little town of
Medora, where we found some small binoculars that we liked. We've
looked at several pairs before, including expensive ones in the
"discount" shops in New York, but until now we've never found
any that we both liked. These were inexpensive enough that we
bought two pairs, one for each of us.
Anyway, by chance, it is possible to shove our camera into one
eye of the binoculars to get close-up photos. I got close-ups
of some buffalo calves nursing. We'll find out later how the
photos came out.
After finishing up at this park, we wanted to put as much
distance behind us as possible. I wanted to make it to Great Falls,
Montana, but we only got as far as Lewistown before we ran out of
steam. At the Yogo Inn, we stayed in a very strange inside room that had
no windows. They said this would be our "budget" option. Nice to visit,
but I wouldn't want to live there.
