We woke this morning and our refrigerator was still working on electric - . We decided to move on and do more research on why it only works on electric and does not on gas.
We headed east on US-2 and once we got about 20 miles east of Minot, the countryside changed. No oil rigs, nor construction, and very little traffic.
An old church along the way:
We made a stop in Rugby because that is the geographical center of North America:
Here it is:
We also stopped in town at the Post Office. Everyone we met smiled and said hello.
Rugby is a cute little town and some day we will be back. The International Peace Gardens are not too far away (another bucket list place), plus there is a neat museum in town. So, yes, we will be back!
We continued on and saw water, water, everywhere:
Flooding??? Not sure.
The greenery was wonderful to see:
We continued thru many small towns and then into Minnesota:
We stopped in Crookston at their City Park and fell in love so decided to stay a few days. Their sites are huge and they have 30 amp service, showers, and water. So we are all set! I will get pictures tomorrow.
After setting up, turning on the AC and putting the refrigerator on electric, we took a little road trip around town and made a few stops to pick up some things. I love these small towns - everyone is so friendly and, yes, they know you are not from around here.
At 6 PM, the ranger came around to collect the fee ($15.00/night); stayed for a while and chatted about the area; and the cats fell in love with him - it was so funny!
