Theodore Roosevelt National Park

Again, I am playing catch up. I was in Theodore Roosevelt National Park early September, and here it is October and I am just now posting about it. But I finally got to visit and spend some time in North Dakota. We spent several days at the park, hiking and sightseeing the area. Theodore Roosevelt loved this area and had a cabin and eventually a ranch here. He like to hunt and that was the reason for wanting to preserve this area, hence the national park. There is still a large herd of wild horses in the park as well as bison and elk, but we only saw the bison and horses.

Looking down on the Little Missouri River. It also ran along side the campground. Notice the coat and earmuffs. It was cool.

Here I am in front of Teddy Roosevelt's cabin. It has been restored and has much of his personal items in the cabin.

I just had to post this picture. They call it 'scoria' and have some fancy explanation about it's makeup, but for all I could see, it's just plain old red sandstone like you find in Oklahoma.
