We return to Western North Dakota for a trip down Highway 200 including a stop at the Lewis and Clark Interpretative Center in Washburn. The foggy misty night made the large statues a soft glow.
Earlier in the day, I stopped in Golden Valley, North Dakota. On the south side of town is a row of unused equipment, including this old grain truck — still licensed, though not with current tags. Golden Vally has a good display of antique equipment, mostly antique construction equipment. However, if you’re fortunate to be there when the Lindemann’s are around, you can talk them in to touring one of the most extensive Harley Davidson museums anywhere! At least one model HD from every year is in their museum. (More about that later in ND 365.)
My turn around point on the day’s trip was the Killdeer Mountains near Killdeer, North Dakota. Here, one of the many oil rigs is drilling for oil. The area is seeing a resurgence in oil activity. More than 100 rigs are operating in the state, the highest number since the early 1980’s.
