Prairie Palace Constructed of Corn in South Dakota

We have to say that we were surprised, to say the least, and impressed by the sight of this improbable landmark in this farm town.

The building looks like it may have been transplanted from Moscow or St. Petersburg… CONTINUE READING >>

Mush Myth Busting: Dog Sledding in Montana

Oh what fun it is to ride in an eight dog open sled.

We wedged our way under a comfy, warm blanket and proceeded to have most of our preconceived notions about mushing destroyed… CONTINUE READING >>

Ottawa, That’s a Capital Idea! Canada’s Capitol

In all of our previous visits to Canada, which number in the dozens, we had never been to her political heart.

Her capital city, Ottawa, proved to be eye opening in many ways to a couple of visiting neighbors from south of the border…CONTINUE READING >>
