A tour of Western North Dakota

So to end our summer vacation with the kids we took them on a day trip to Western North Dakota yesterday for a 12-hour day - nothing like driving 600 miles in one day!  We stopped in Jamestown, ND to see the world's biggest buffalo (statue), the Double Ditch Indian Village (important to history), Fort Mandan, the Lewis & Clark Interpretive Center then to Garrison Dam and Lake Sakakawea then back to our capital in Bismarck for our 8 year old to see the actual Capital Building! Whew! I thought I would share some of the day's photos with you - enjoy your armchair tour of Western North Dakota!
