North Dakota Day One

After three days of driving, I arrived in Langdon, ND last night and absolutely crashed after dinner. I didn’t even try to read. Lights out at 8:30.

I woke up just before the sun rose into a beautiful crystal clear blue sky and when I got out to the car I found frost on the window! I had to dig into the back to find the scraper. Sure glad I remembered to bring it.

I drove about 230 miles around the area and visited a number of places. I found a number of abandoned places plus a few surprises.

Overall it was a productive day.

Today the Internet connection in the hotel came back after being out last night so just to prove I’m not goofing off, here are a few sample images.

Just south of Langdon there is a huge wind farm.

One of the many abandoned houses I found in the small towns around Langdon.

Main street Nekoma, ND

This church was tucked into a cluster of trees with nothing else in the vicinity.

Everywhere I went, I saw large grain elevators, especially by the railroad tracks.

A strange thing in the middle of the prairie. I Haven't heard about any alien abductions lately, however.
