After several days in Badlands National Park in South Dakota, we weren’t real keen on visiting Theodore Roosevelt National Park in North Dakota, which had its share of badlands, grasslands, and seemed not at all unique.
However, as often happens, we were surprised by what we found. Not only did we find an adorable little town in which to celebrate Independence Day, but also we found a park with some solid hikes and small crowds.
Also, Wilson hiked to the top of his first peak, unassisted. It was a short hike, less than half a mile, but he climbed to the top on his own two little feet. Pictures below.
On top of the great area and Wilson’s peak bagging, I also got to learn more about and visit the frontier haunts of one of my historical heroes, Teddy Roosevelt.
Here are some of our photos from Roosevelt National Park.
