Many times I've driven the scenic loop in the south unit of Theodore Roosevelt National Park in western North Dakota, and each time I've come to the T in the road, I've been tempted to take a right turn to follow a gravel road to cross the north boundary, just to see what I could see on the other side of the park. Each time I was stopped by either foreboding weather, or the condition of the gravel (considering I was on a motorcycle), or the intrusion of a large, not-so-friendly-looking bison which didn't think I should turn that direction. This time, however, the timing was right. That is, correct. With a Forest Service map as our guide, we followed the Little Missouri River north, and found beautiful green pastures beneath bluffs which glowed in the afternoon sunlight. A right turn that was, at a perfect time!
