But after leaving Jamestown and heading west once again we hit storm. This one was creating havoc in three counties including the ones we had just passed through.
A tornado touched down just behind us, probably less than twenty minutes after we left Jamestown. And the rain and hail was tremendous for about twenty minutes and required us to slow to near crawling speed of 25 or 30 miles an hour. But then just as quick as it came on we emerged from the west side of it and never had rain again all the rest of the day. We stopped in a reststop and noted that the wind was tremedous. Probably above 50 mph with gusts much greater. That lasted the rest of the day.
In Bismarck we stopped at Camp Hancock State Historical Site and got a few pictures of buildings and a locomotive that was being restored. It still had a lot of work left to do but I took pictures anyway. Then up to the State Capital to get a few more pictures.
Dinner tonight was at Pizza Hut.
Our hotel for the night was a Best Western.
So we got a little of everything today. The fun of finding a great railroad bridge, and seeing some albino Buffalo, and some very scary weather.
