A vast field

And a wind turbine

(I've already seen more turbines in ND than I had in all the other states combined.)


  1. Jeff says:

    The vast plains are green in many ways aren’t they? Shore looks dry with all that rain you’ve been having.

  2. Karen Too says:

    Good for ND.

  3. Andrew in VT says:

    ND is the Saudi Arabia of wind.

  4. Sarah says:

    You missed the windmills by not coming through Northern Iowa, they’re all over up here, we have bunches of wind farms.

  5. Tesla says:

    You’re seeing all those wind turbines because North Dakota is the windiest state in the US. Learned that on the history channel the other day :)

  6. John says:

    I lived in Minot for about two years. All I seem to remember about the state was wind, snow, a sun that never set (or never rises, depending on the part of the year) and less people in the whole state than the city of Indianapolis. The odd thing is that I really miss it. The sky is amazing out there!

    You haven’t seen flat until you get around the Bismarck area. Good luck on the journey! That’s a wonderful state you’re strolling through and when you get past it and begin seeing the Rockies rolling up? Pure magic! :)

    • Jeff says:

      He’ll need magic “rolling up” those rolling rockies. One foot in front of the other. You got all of us on your side…and pushing from behind if neccassary

    • Carol says:

      Bismarck? Flat? You must have never been in Fargo. It’s part of the reason we have trouble with flooding. There is no downhill. The water has nowhere to go so it sits.

      • Brandy says:

        agreed, Bismarck has a few hills, Fargo and the Valley area was once the bottom of a lake millions of years ago, that’s why we have the best farm land in all of the US. :)
