Last Summer, we considered a detour to Teddy Roosevelt National Park, as we were in South Dakota.  The kids couldn't justify the added drive, so we decided not to go, and this National Park has lived in family lore ever since, especially for Justin, who REALLY wanted to visit.  We made our way to Theodore Roosevelt National Park after leaving Red Lodge, Montana, and arrived in the sweet little town of Medora (the gateway to the National Park).  


 We set off to explore the park for the day, starting at the Visitor Center where we were able to see the original cabin inhabited by TR.  We then headed into the park to drive the Scenic Loop, exploring the entire South Unit of the park, and check out the main attractions...
 Prarie Dog Town.  The kids LOVE the prairie dogs!

 Skyline Vista Hike

 Wind Canyon Trail Hike

 Boicourt Trail Hike

 Working on our Junior Ranger Books...
 Pitstop for lunch!  Not a bad view!
 Buck Hill Hike

 Swearing in as Junior Rangers
 The town of Medora is famous for their musical, the Medora Musical, and we had tickets for the evening show. SO MUCH FUN - it walked through the history of Medora, North Dakota, and Teddy Roosevelt, and was a blast to watch.

 Goodbye, North Dakota!
