From Keene, ND, we headed south on ND 23 to Johnson’s Corner. We veered south and east on McKenzie County 53 past Croft and on to ND 22 heading south. Along 53 we saw penned up elk and buffalo, but the cattle roamed across and on the road (picture #2). Heading south on ND22 we skirted the eastern edge of the Badlands (picture #3). About 7 miles north of Dickinson we turned west on the road leading to New Hradec. We went through that small town and across the farm country for another 5 miles or so. The Atlas showed a “T” at the spot with the confluence being about ½ to ¾ of a mile forward and to the north but in reality our road (picture #5) narrowed but continued on west. We found a wide spot in the road about .4 of a mile south of the point and headed out across the field. The crop appeared to be hay or oats. As we approached the confluence (picture #1) we thought it would be in the pond but it was on the southern edge of it. Back in the car we headed south toward I-94.
