Oil country

Just north of New Town, N.D. on State Highway 1804. At this stage of the ride, I am right around 1,420 miles from my starting point near Alton, Ill. (Google Street View image)

I am certain North Dakota has plenty of beautiful spots, but here I am almost to Montana and I hadn’t come across any of them. After spotting my first oil derrick of the trip, I came across this scene. The next few miles definitely made up for the last few boring weeks.
