Day 99

Medora, ND

July 3rd, 2010

Beautiful. Historic. Tourist trap.


  1. Craig ( NC!) says:

    And the tourist flock for miles around to see the huge metal eye sore on top of the hill.
    Some thing make me wonder.
    But you can not deny the beauty of the badlands.

    Are you tempted to hitch a ride for a while?? ;-) Nice place for a rest though.

  3. Chaser1 says:

    Medora has summer passion plays and is an old rustic town that holds to the traditions of the late 19th century and early 20th century.

  4. Jeff says:

    Thanks chaser1, Matt hope you got some rest at the rest stop.

  5. Janine says:

    I’d fall for the trap. Breathtaking.

  6. Candice in Alabama says:

    Beautiful. But what is that white metal pole on top? I can’t figure it out??!?!

  7. Flavia says:

    I’ve been following Matt since Ohio… I just love how he’s sharing this beautiful journey with us each day. I hope he writes a book about his travels some day.

  8. Jim in AR via MN says:

    Medora is a tourist trap like Yellowstone, Yosemite…name any National Park…it’s all in what you do…but they are all ours…and they are beautiful…resist the lights and the “largest ball of twine” or some such thing…and enjoy the wonders in the Medora area…which is Theodore Roosevelt National Park…it is a wonder…

    But as for the “tourist trap”…the Medora Musical…an outdoor theater…is great….for families…for anybody…in the middle of all that beauty…all of the tourists are us…or else we wouldn’t be there…we would just sit at home and let someone else do it…

    -Badlands, you gotta live it everyday
    Let the broken hearts stand
    As the price you’ve gotta pay
    We’ll keep pushin’ till it’s understood
    and these badlands start treating us good-
