June 7 – Medora, ND

The town of Medora is a tourist destination in northwest ND.  What was once a cattle town has become a mecca for visitors looking for a taste of the cowboy life.  Our experience began at the Pitchfork Fondue on a bluff overlooking the town. Pitchforks were loaded with steaks then plunged into hot oil.  The steaks were delicious and served with beans, potatoes and veggies.  Dinner was served in a partially covered pavilion at picnic tables.

We moved to the nearby theater in anticipation of the Medora Musical a high-spirited song and dance revue telling the story of frontier life. Unfortunately as we were seated in the outdoor amphitheater the gray clouds turned to rain. Plastic ponchos were in high demand as we waited out the inclement weather.  Mother Nature prevailed and the performance was cancelled.  Maybe next time...
