The Fourth of July



We went to Walhalla, ND to help our friends celebrate July 4th. We ate the most delicious BBQ ribs I've had in ages and then went to the point of land on their property that overlooks the Tongue River. What a place to view the sunset! Unfortunately, my photos were mostly either too dark or too light. You can see where the river makes a huge oxbow. We want to go down there with our canoe some day. Later we watched the fireworks from there. We had to sit in our little portable screen tent though, because the mosquitoes were so bad.
We stayed overnight because our border crossing closes at ten PM. This morning we were treated to home made cappuccino and quiche before leaving for home. Thanks Brenda and Du.

Eventually found both Walhalla and Morden on my atlas map so can see where you went. What happens normally at the border crossing?

Ribs sound tasty. Glad you had a great 4th of July.

What a gorgeous view of nature and landscape. Mosquitoes are bad here too and I seem to be a magnet for them.
