Theodore Roosevelt National Park Wild Horses

There’s something magical about nature in the wild.

Horses, majestic as they are, are not particularly exotic animals. We routinely see them on farms and in stables. But catching sight of a pair of mustangs, unbridled and unbroken – standing free on a wind-swept mountain – is an entirely different experience.

      That photo was taken in Theodore Roosevelt National Park in North Dakota. It’s a great National Park, and one that doesn’t seem to get as much traffic as many of the others. We practically had the place to ourselves. It was awesome!

    I really love the Teddy Roosevelt NP and the Black Hills area in general. Just such a beautiful place, that is more quiet than a lot of other NP areas. Thanks for sharing your time there! And have fun in New Mexico!

      You’re absolutely right about Teddy being quieter than other national parks. We practically had the place to ourselves. It’s a bit out of the way, which is probably why it is less visited, but it is worth the trip.

    Hey Brian. Thanks for the Like on my blog and thanks for swinging through North Dakota on your trip. I’m originally from there and I’m starting to lose count of the people I talk to that say they’re extensive travelers but have never been to the upper midwest. It’s a place more east coasters should go and appreciate.

      It’s true. When most people set out to do what we’re doing they usually hop on a plane and skip the U.S. entirely – like there is nothing here worth seeing or doing. I think we tend to underappreciate our own back yard and romaticize the next plot over. We try not to do that (too much). Thanks for your comment, and please stop over to our new site
