Southern North Dakota
Pictures and Attractions

Are you planning on traveling to North Dakota? We recently took a road trip there and had lots of fun. Since we live in Tripp SD, we took the Lewis and Clark scenic byway north to get to North Dakota.

We passed through several Indian Reservations, and had lunch in their casinos. The picture below was taken after we left the little northern town of Pollock in South Dakota.

On these pages you will find information and pictures of our travels through North Dakota. Probably the best time we had there is in the bustling little town called Jamestown. We also visited Devil's Lake and the Spirit Lake Casino.

Traveling to North Dakota in our friends RV was fun, but it sure did take a lot of gas for this trip.

More Pictures of North Dakota

-a hay bale on the side of the road... I got out and took a closeup picture, they are about 5 feet tall, but you don't think they are big when you see them in the fields.
-brown cows in a rolling hills field... another view
-a larger picture of the Welcome to North Dakota sign.. I walked across the street and took a picture of the Welcome to South Dakota sign, so we were right on the border.
-golden fields...square bales of straw stacked like a haystack
-we passed a field of sun flowers, in fact, there was a lot of fields of sunflowers
-then the terrain changed, and it got rather scenic with rolling hills... we were heading north through the county of Emmons on Hwy 1804
-dead white trees in a swamp-like area

See the first town we passed called Linton, ND
