Back home again!
We cut our last stop short at Brooks Memorial State Park near Goldendale, WA so we could get back to Hillsboro on Sunday. Great trip! We traveled about 5800 miles in 37 days and added four new states to our tracking map on the trailer.
We left Minocqua, WI and traveled due east to Interstate State Park in Taylors Falls, MN. From there, it was to Fargo, ND. We camped on the Red River there and visited the downtown area and a cool Viking ship museum in the town next door, Moorhead, MN. After Fargo, it was on to Fort Abraham Lincoln State Park in Mandan, ND, just south of Bismarck, for one night before heading to Theodore Roosevelt National Park in Medora, ND. Beautiful country there and a much different type of badlands than what we saw in South Dakota.
From Medora, it was one night at a KOA in Billings, after stopping at Pompey’s Pillar National Monument. William Clark carved his name in a limestone cliff there in 1806 on his return trip with the Corps of Discovery. Next, we camped at Lewis and Clark Caverns State Park before stopping at the Bowl and Pitcher campground at Riverside State Park in Spokane, WA. Check out these pics from some of the stops along the way:
Next up…I’m not sure! Stay tuned for more genealogical adventure to come! Meanwhile, thanks for visiting my blog! Looking forward to hearing from any of you quiet cousins out there. Also, I fixed all of the picture galleries on Road Trip Update #3. Don’t forget to revisit that post.
