Day Four: Glendive to Fargo

A shorter day than yesterday - essentially a straight line across the state of North Dakota on I-94.

This town wasn't content with a one-letter rock sign:

Home on the Range

Welcome to North Dakota!

A warning sign about bison. But like the Little Bighorn and its snakes, they promised a dangerous animal and didn't deliver!

There were plenty of these unnamed exits, whose 'No Services' sign means: Tourist, there's nothing for you here, not even gas. Just keep on driving...

I missed getting a shot of the giant buffalo bison, but here's a giant, unexplained cow (edit: this cow turns out to be called "Salem Sue"):

Just entering Mandan, we're passed by two cops (one of each kind) with sirens going. Five of them converged on this hay-hauler. Who knows what they think he's doing?

North Dakota has very pretty (and very clean) rest stops:
