This morning we started on the Little Missouri Grasslands drive - 55 miles, no bathrooms and we knew it would take about four hours - a long time to wait. The drive was well worth it though. It was on gravel roads, sometimes smooth but usually on the rough side and sometimes deeply rutted. You need a pickup or a high SUV to go over these roads.

This drive was through the National Grasslands but was partly on private land. We went over a lot of cattle guards and saw a lot of cattle, of course. We also saw golden eagles and pronghorn deer a couple of times. One golden eagle was being chased by a crow, but seemed oblivious. The scenery was outstanding.
