(Menoken, ND) Hi 73 Lo 61 -- This is a small park, with not many amenities, but we like it. It meets our needs for a short stay on our way east. It stays pretty full, mostly with oil field workers in the area. But they leave a few sites open for transients, and it's been full every night. The park is 10 miles east of Bismarck, with no real town nearby. Click on any photo below to enlarge it.
Our site, another nice long pull thru with plenty of room.
The park is mostly gravel, but there is some grass between the sites.
The views around us.
Farm silos on the other side of the trees.
There’s a couple interesting looking RV’s. This one is a semi trailer with windows and a door cut out. I'd love to see what it looks like inside.
This fifth wheel looks like it was home made. Kind of rough looking up close.
Here's another semi trailer.
The small bathhouse and laundry.
We took a drive to Bismarck yesterday to check out the Capitol building. It's not the normal domed Capitol building like you usually see. At 242 feet tall this is the tallest building in the state.
While downtown we also went to the movie The November Man.
It was an action packed spy movie, sort of like a James Bond movie but not as good. (Pierce Brosnan played James Bond in the 90's.) It had a complicated plot (why do action movies have to have such convoluted plots?). It was good, but we would have been ok waiting to see it on DVD.
Tonight we’ll watch the NASCAR race from Atlanta. Tomorrow we’re on the move, so we’ll see you in two days.
