Although this is not my first visit to Minnesota, I want to stop somewhere new in each state, whether or not I’ve previously visited the area. This time, I visited the Runestone Museum in Alexandria.  They have historical displays of cultures that developed in the area.

Town’s getting ready for Memorial Day, but I’m hoping to be at least a state away by then.  RB and I crossed into North Dakota–my first visit to the state.  Got as far as Bismarck before calling it a night.




The full range of pictures I took during the first six days of what I’m calling “North by Northwest-2014” is available at To see those from specific parts of the trip, click on the indicated regions on the map at the top of the album.
