July 5

We left Theodore Roosevelt National Park and drove to Killdeer, North Dakota and set up the trailer in the town’s municipal RV park. We need to take a shower and recharge the Casita’s battery. After unhooking we drove to the Knife River Indian Villages National Historic Site near Stanton, North Dakota. This was a village where the Awatixa Indians lived for thousands of years until the Sioux burned the place in the mid 1800’s. It was also the place where Louis and Clark hired Sacagewea and her husband to serve as translators on their expedition. All that is left are some circular lumps where their dwellings used to be. It looks a lot like a golf course. As we left we drove by a field full of yellow plants. Today we have been gone six weeks – we have traveled 7,354 miles.
