I have often thought I would like to travel through Kansas this time of year and see the fields of sunflowers. So I was really surprised to see so many fields of them in North Dakota! The first fields of sunflowers I came across on this trip were on the western edge of Minnesota and then in North Dakota they appeared all along interstate 94. What a treat!
Along the interstate and right at an exit is the world’s largest scrap-metal sculpture (earning a spot in the Guinness Book of World Records). “Gesse in Flight,” by sculptor Gary Greff towers 110 feet high. I took a couple of quick pictures and resisted the urge to hang around until sunset, which was a little more than an hour away to take more.
This sculpture sits up on a hill and the view from here was great, I could see for miles.
I stayed the night in Dickinson, a town on the western edge of North Dakota and started my drive through Montana today.
