Open Range still open

Drove by in July 2009 and the range was still open. I recall my wife not being as impressed as I was.

Open range -- get it?

The Old Open Range Gag

Here is a picture of the "open range gag," and it was a tad disappointing, but nonetheless there for travelers to visit. It is literally in the middle of nowhere and a ways out in the field so keep your eyes peeled for it if you venture out or you might just miss it!

The Old Open Range Gag

North Dakota is full of open ranges, but some clever soul has created a large stove with an open door -- an "open range" on the open range! It is in a field west of Route 85 between and Bowman, ND and Amidon, ND.
