The High Places of the Earth, Part VII

There still remains an event worthy of note from the Rockies Road Trip to western Canada and that is that on our return we passed White Butte, the highest point in North Dakota, 30th among the states, and rising to an elevation of 3,506 feet. I would encourage anyone visiting Mount Rushmore to consider taking a real country drive somewhere throughout the rest of the Dakotas. It’s almost a trip back in time, evoking, at the same time, a sense of wild, horizonless breathing room for present day pioneers.

The view from Route 85.

Notable for it's rarity more than beauty or height.
