North Dakota, June 2007

Giant buffalo - the world's largest! - in Jamestown Door #5...mysterious and dangerous Such a sad look of resignation...and what's with the hair? Wild horse at Theodore Roosevelt View of the Little Missouri River from our campsite Atop Buck Hill near sunset Me looking contemplative, geeky, and with blonde hair Rampaging bison had destroyed this path earlier in the week after heavy rains Mrs. Melobi looks on from what we thought was the highest point of our grueling hike The bend in the river, just as the storm was rolling in (note the clouds to the right) The CCC shelter at the overlook This is the storm that we barely avoided - we would've been in bad shape, caught in that on the exposed badlands hilltops Looking pretty shaggy there, big guy! The bison looks on Our home away from home Flag in Medora I want a "rackulator" - but for a different purpose...
