08 Sep Janel: Miss Moo made it to Manitoba
Northeastern North Dakota—We recently had a nice change of scenery. We took a drive over to the International Peace Gardens. I didn’t even know it existed and my dad said he’d been there many years ago. So, LaVern, Carlene, Miss Moo and I made the trip over to Dunsieth, North Dakota (near highway 281). We crossed the border and Miss Moo has been next to the border before (because we’ve harvested fields just next to the Canadian border) but this time she made it to Manitoba! She’s been to many states and now another country! Way to go, Miss Moo!
My favorite was the formal gardens. It was just a memorable enchanted walk. The 9/11 Memorial is in memory of the ones we lost. It included remnants from the collapsed towers at the World Trade Center and I was told that local organizations host 9/11 remembrance events at the site, too. There was so much to see. There were hiking and biking trails and picnic areas. There was a historic lodge, dedication cairn, a peace chapel and bell tower. I love gardens and flowers. It was quite the sight and I really enjoyed walking in the gardens and seeing all of the colorful flowers and trees too. I’d love to have my own garden someday!
I would’ve liked to have stayed longer but we ended up going to the field. We’ve been cutting wheat but again had some cloudy weather and rain again. The 10-day forecast has highs in the 60s and 50s and some chance of showers but is supposed to be mostly clear. I just want to get our wheat and canola cut and make the big move back south (700 miles) for fall harvest.

On our way to the International Peace Gardens!
Such beautiful scenery. Here we were on the Canadian side of the border in Manitoba.
This is the border!
Such a beautiful place!
I love flowers!

We were there Sept. 1 and it was very pretty!

A pretty view!
That’s the border! Amazing gardens!
I saw W’eel Turtle along the road in Dunsieth, North Dakota.
W’eel Turtle is made from over 2,000 steel wheel rims welded together and was created in 1982.
Cutting wheat in northeast North Dakota.
A very nice wheat crop.
I was full so had to wait a minute or two. Sometimes I don’t mind because then I can get out and check behind the combines (making sure they are doing a good job) and also take more pictures of the crop.
