Made it to Bismarck, ND today. Weather was much cooler than in Pierre, SD yesterday (97 at 6:30PM). It even rained a little to cool things off. Spent most of the day riding through the Cheyenne and Standing Rock Indian Reservations. Pretty country. Highlight of the day was my stop at Huff Indian Village Historic Site. This was the site of a Mandan Indian village around 1450 AD. Now, all you can make out are the bumps in the ground where the dwellings used to be. Unless you're a prairie dog in which case the underground structures are in the way of your tunneling endeavors so you dig out whatever's in your way and deposit it on the surface. On top of one of these mounds, I found a pottery shard made over 500 years ago by a Mandan Indian woman. It's my new lucky charm. I put it in the dash panel cover on the Squaw Magnet to ward off evil spirits.

 

I'm staying at Fort Abraham Lincoln State Park outside of Bismarck. This is where Custer was stationed in 1871 before he launched his famous Black Hills campaign. Very pretty spot and, now that Labor Day's over, very quiet. Tomorrow will be full of stops at important places on the Lewis and Clark Trail. This is the area where Lewis and Clark spent the Winter of 1804 with the Mandan and Hidatsa Indians before moving into completely unknown (to White men) territory in the spring of 1805. I will also be exiting North Dakota tomorrow and entering Montana for the better part of two weeks. It's possible that I'll find another Best Western to bum wireless access from but, I kind of doubt it. So, I'm guessing this will be my last post before my 8 day kayaking stint on the Upper Missouri starting on Friday. Really looking forward to that. That stretch of the Missouri has been designated a National Wild and Scenic River so it should still bear a close resemblance to what Lewis and Clark saw 200 years ago.

 

That's it for now. Talk to you later.
