Medora, ND – Still howling wind, rain and cold
DeeBev – had no idea that TR was actually a squatter. Thanks for the info.
I wanted to see the Painted Canyon and even though it was so cold we headed out. It’s just a few miles east on the interstate and is right off the interstate.
We saw this beauty on our way. We stayed safely in the truck.
We stopped at the Visitor’s Center but they didn’t have much to offer so that meant we HAD to go outside to the viewpoint. We were there long enough for me to take a few pictures and then my hands were so cold I couldn’t push the button on the camera any more.
The flag was lowered because of the school shooting in Oregon. It was flapping so hard in the wind I thought it was going to rip.
As we were pulling out a young man in a van asked us if we could help him jump his van which wouldn’t start. He had jumper cables so he and Jim hooked up the truck. Nothing. Nada. Zilch. And remember how cold it is. Jim was able to figure out that it was a starter solenoid and was able to show him how to bypass it with a screwdriver to start the van. That would get him to Wisconsin where a buddy could help him. It does feel good when you can help someone out.
