Theodore Roosevelt National Park

North Dakota’s “broken country” captured the imagination of Theodore Roosevelt in 1883, just like it captivates thousands of visitors today. These alien landscapes are harsh yet beautiful, equal parts unforgiving and majestic. They’re also home to critters large and small, including bison, elk, prairie dogs, and wild horses, along with more than 400 species of plants and wildflowers.
