17-Jun-2001 -- continued from 47N103W)

We picked up I-94 at Exit 51 and turned west heading for Beach, ND. in search of our 4th confluence of the day. We passed by “Home on the Range” (picture #6). We figured that was appropriately named as we had seen antelope playing and buffalo, albeit penned not roaming. We topped off the gas tank in Beach and headed north on ND16. About five miles from Beach we parked on the shoulder, crawled under a barbed wire fence (picture #2) and trotted across the pasture, easily reaching the point at about 7:45 pm (pictures #1 & #3). Leaving here we went south back to I-94 then headed west into Montana.
