Roosevelt National Park

Roosevelt National Park is pretty but there is nothing here you won't see at other places on this trip. There are wild animals and "badland" terrain. We really enjoyed the drive from Custer State Park to Roosevelt National Park. Its miles and miles of hay fields. It is so remote that dog-sitters advertise on the radio and the rest of the ads pertain to cattle equipment. There are places where you crest the rolling hills and you can see for 10 miles to the next crest. We got to the park just in time to pitch camp and take a scenic drive. We spent one night, primarily because we wanted to tag North Dakota so we would cover all 48 states. If this is not important to you, you could travel from Custer State Park more directly to Yellowstone and see the Devil's Tower and visit Cody Wyoming which we missed. We plan on seeing those if we repeat part of this trip someday.
