On our recent trip to North and South Dakota, our first stop was in Fargo.

When we were visiting Theodore Roosevelt National Park, I happened to see this car pulling out of its space in the parking lot of the visitors’ center. It belonged to a young couple that we had casually talked to in the visitors’ center, so I asked if I could take a picture. I joked that […]Read More CFFC: Bumper sticker memories
