I have just taken a new job in Great Falls, Montana. A new state and new areas to explore.

Two days ago I woke up in WINNER, South Dakota. Never heard of it.
Next day was overcast and cool, so I just started meandering. I made a wrong turn and I knew I did it.
I headed northeast, using many rodas. There were several large lakes near Fort Thompson.
Eventually I broke free and headed north using RT 47 to get to Seneca. The sun came out.
I passed near Aberdeen, and I heard it the Pheasant Heaven around there. I saw maybe a dozen pretty quickly. I wanted to take a picture, but they quickly ran away and it did not happen.
When I crossed into North Dakota, I stopped and played a small golf course in Ellendale. It was not a nice course. I should have driven on. Then I headed for Fargo. About an hour outside of town, I ran into that duck.
It was a beautiful sunny evening.
It was raining in the morning pretty hard. I drove around town in the AM just to see what was there. Then I headed north a ways. The rain just got heavier, so there was no big interest to get near the Canadian border.
I turned east, now I was heading home. I cut across a bunch of small roads just south of Grand Forks. I got on Route 2 as usual. I would stay on it all the way to Mackinac traits.
I stopped a couple times at golf courses, as the rain finally stopped. But it was COLD and WINDY. I saw no reason to go.
Super and Duluth were cool cities right on the water, Lake Superior. Boats and docks everywhere.
Now in Hurley east of Ashland on RT 2. Weather will dtermine what happens tomorrow.
