The two RV Gypsies
at Theodore Roosevelt National Park - North Unit
in North Dakota
August 28, 2016

The driving distance between the North and South Units is 69 miles via I-94 and US 85. The two RV Gypsies visited both entrances.

The Scenic Drive in the North Unit is 28 miles round trip with scenery very different from the more popular South Unit. However, part of the road is often closed in the winter.

The two RV Gypsies found the Buckhorn Trail to be the most interesting area with the tilted mounds and Cannon Ball Concretions.

Oxbow Overlook. Here the Little Missouri River takes a hard turn to the east. The river originally continued north to Hudson Bay. During the most recent ice age, continental glaciers blocked its way, hence the turn.

As the two RV Gypsies were leaving the park, they finally saw a buffalo. Although they have seen lots of buffalo elsewhere, they always enjoy seeing more.
