Day 3 - Jamestown, North Dakota to Medora, South Dakota
Today is dedicated to sightseeing of Theodore Roosevelt National Park. Stop at the Visitors center, then drive along the Scenic Loop Road where the gently rolling hills open dramatically into the varied and colorful layers of the badlands. Curiosity might lead you to take a closer look at the rocks making up the layers. This closer look takes you back millions of years to an ancient world of swamps and forests. Next visit Chateau De Mores State Historic Site for touring of the Interpretive Center and the Chateau. When you step inside this 1880s style 26 room Chateau, you will step back in time. The Marquise de Mores built the Chateau in the 1880s. He then went on to name the little cattle town his Chateau overlooked, "Medora" after his wife Medora Vallombrosa, the Marquise de Mores. Return to Medora with some free time for lunch on own and to relax. The join the group for a fun filled afternoon and evening starting with A Theodore Roosevelt Salute to Medora. In this one man show, Teddy Roosevelt comes to life in this rousing presentation about our 26th President, and his life as a father, soldier, hunter, and the man who fell in love with Medora and the Dakota Territory. Next experience the Medora Pitchfork Fondue which consists of steaks being put on the tines of pitchforks (nice, clean ones, of course), and cooked in hot oil. And somehow those steaks are seasoned perfectly so that they come out just right. Delicious! After dinner, take a behind the scenes tour of the musical, then enjoy The Medora Musical, the rootin'-tootinest, boot-scootinest show in all the west! There is no other show quite like it. Set in the outdoor splendor of the rugged North Dakota Badlands, this professionally produced, high energy, western-style musical show is proudly dedicated to the legacy of America’s 26th President, Theodore Roosevelt, and the time he spent here in the Badlands of the Dakota Territory. Each show pays tribute to American patriotism and the Old West. (234 miles)
