July 14 – Roaming in the Bison’s Home

This morning, we did laundry, vacuumed the truck, changed campground reservations, lubed the RV suspension links, repaired Martha’s cart and strolled around downtown Medora.

After lunch, we entered the Theodore Roosevelt NP again and drove to the north portion of the loop road to participate in a hike entitled Give Me a Roam in the Buffalo’s Home.

We were lead by an intern, Sam, who is from Tennessee. We walked a couple miles in the prairie grass between eroded hillsides and ended at the carcass of a dead bison.

We changed our future trip route and campground reservations and will camp at Houghton, MI in the Upper Peninsula where an Isle Royal NP visitor’s center is located. We will take the virtual tour of Isle Royal NP instead of taking three hours to get their by boat and three hours back and a pile of cash.

Tomorrow, Thursday, we are heading east to eastern-North Dakota for a one night stay.

Have a great day.
