Grand Forks, ND to Bismarck, ND

Began the day with breakfast at the Hilton – good omelets. Then downtown to pick up the walking/cycling trails on the Greenway. This huge public space was developed after the flood of 1997 as a buffer zone along the Red River. I may have been the only wingnut walking with free weights, but there were lots of cyclists, dog walkers and joggers enjoying this marvelous parkland.

Stopped in at the farmer’s market when we were done walking and bought raspberries, tomato, basil, cucumber and sourdough bread to have for lunch. Then back to the hotel to shower and check out, then a quick grocery stop at Hugo’s before hitting the highway at 1100.

Stopped for a picnic lunch at a rest area near Valley City and went the whole nine yards with the wicker basket, tablecloth, and so on. Least Likely Licence Plate of the Day: a tie between Tennessee and Missouri.

Tonight we plan to catch the shuttle downtown (parking is limited) to eat at Pirogue, and I’ll post the dinner debriefing later tonight.
