Sunday we left the Hart Ranch and headed north to North Dakota. As we drove through Spearfish, SD, we came across the High Plains Western Heritage Museum, and decided to walk thru. Once again, a very intriguing museum to spend a whole day wandering, unfortunately, we allotted an hour to this delightful spot.

It contains a 5-state Regional Museum and was founded to honor the Old West Pioneers and Native Americans of SD, ND, MT, WY, and NE. it covers the categories of Agriculture, Mining, Transportation, Logging and Native American Lore. The horse drawn buggies (and hearse) were very well kept, the antique saddles well-preserved and all the artifacts were presented very nicely. Again, we enjoyed the education and opportunity to enjoy the museum.

We lunched at a Perkins restaurant, and the Hills mentioned that this chain was ‘for the folks over 55’. Well, fortunately, we are all over 62, so, we did not ruin the restaurant’s reputation it was a fine lunch, and we headed north once again.

A fine storm was brewing as we approached North Dakota and Judie enjoyed hanging out the window, shooting photos of clouds and rain cells. We stopped at a little bitty store and bar, actually, this spot was the entire town and social center of Ludlow, SD. The owner was happy to sell us ‘farm-fresh eggs’ for1.00 a dozen. We sure enjoyed those eggs for a breakfast.

On north to highway 94 thru the Grasslands of ND we traveled. We arrived at the campground in Glendive later then we had planned, and we all went to bed early that night.
