Canadian Border, Boissevain, MB Canada and Dunseith, ND


While living in North Dakota for 5 years, there wasn't much to do.  One mall in Minot and the better shopping area in Bismarck, but still a small farming community.  During our 5 years stationed there, we went to what we found; South Dakota and Canada, but in North Dakota itself, only a wild life things to do.  Much of the Dakotas are prairie lands and dirt.  Not even trees.  We use to joke the state tree was the telephone pole and the state bird was the mosquito (they grow them big there).  Prairie dogs, most affectionately called Dak Rats, were the state animal... other than that, there wasn't much else but wind and snow... but we took Scott's dad and his step-mom over the Canadian Border so they could say they've been to Canada...not much to do there, but was just a simple thing to do.  What people don't understand is though there is a border check, it's probably the most peaceable border in the world.
