Well, we made it out of Regina, but it took us a long time and a lot of trouble, that's for sure! The coldest days of the winter i remember in these 3 years, with temperatures down to -30s and windchills of -40s. Of course, car doesn't start. Call CAA, they are busy, come the next day.

... was discovering a prairie dog city which was super cute as these little creature make the same noise as a squeaky kids toy, see video below for sound effects. After ticking the box of this part of the world we headed back into town for some dinner and maybe a drink or two at the bar/casino of our hotel.

This stay in Medora was prior to him being President in the early 1900's. The land obviously moved him as one of his first acts as President was to claim these lands as National Parks. In fact he was known as the conservationist President, as he saw the beauty and the need to preserve some of America's natural history...hugely unpopular at the time though we thank him for it today.
Phew another long day.
... light up the actual mountains behind the stage with an American Flag and sho nuff there was a deer dead middle of the mountain. Picture perfect.

We payed $99 for a two double beda room, so per person about $25, which is pretty reasonable for a super warm room. They are smokers rooms and we were not told, so the smell is a bit disturbing at first, but at least in our room it wasn't that strong. The welcome was a bit cold, but they are nice people. They had coffee and juice and bagels and toast for breakfast, included.
