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.
When you plan on fun, it’s fun to plan. Or something like that. Look ahead to see dates worth circling and events worth getting excited for.
