|Wild horses on the Little Missouri River in the rain|
|A Black Tailed Prairie Dog|
|Another Prairie Dog...there are several Prairie Dog Towns|
|A herd of wild horses|
|The first of several bison|
|Just minutes later we saw our second bison|
|Only a few minutes farther we saw these two wild turkeys and their four young ones|
|A herd of bison|
|In the distance, outside the park, there is an oil well.|
|This is the oil well using my optical zoom.|
|A larger herd of bison on both sides of the road|
|btw...Bella barked at all the bison but not the prairie dogs...hmmm|
|On our way out, back to the river where we saw the first wild horses|
We stopped at the Park Visitors Center. After being moved several times, this cabin from Theodore Roosevelt's Maltese Cross Ranch which was seven miles south of Medora, ND, is now back home behind the Center.
This enormous Cottonwood tree stands behind the Maltese Cross Ranch cabin.
Does this rock formation, just inside the park, look like a turtle to anyone but me?
This evening we attended a dinner with such an intriguing name that we couldn't resist...the Pitchfork Steak Fondue next door to the Medora Musical amphitheater. We stood in line with about a thousand others for the steak and buffet served in a beautiful setting.
While we waited, I took the following photos. Here is a line of pitchforks already loaded with steaks to be dropped into the fondue pots with diners being served in the background.
There were several boiling fondue pots in which the steak-loaded pitchforks were cooked.
Another view of raw steaks lined up in front of the fondue pots.
Just look at the juices dripping from these steaks on their way to the line of hungry diners. mmmm
Rich is enjoying his perfectly cooked rib-eye but thought the whole meal would be much more appetizing if served on something other than the metal trays similar to those used in mess halls and prisons...teehee
