Another fall sunny day is upon us in the great state of North Dakota!
Yesterday, I had one of my great exploring adventures! I set out to find and shoot the great town of Balta, North Dakota. Recently I had read an article about the Balta Bar and Grill. I packed up Toby, and headed out to lunch at the Balta Bar! What adventures lie ahead, we did not know. Toby, of course, is always anxious and ready to go!
For one thing, I found out was that the population at the last census was 4312, in 2015. Wow, that isn’t very many people.
The Balta Bar and Grill was closed when I got there. I guess I should have checked ahead of time. What I did find was a very cool little church! If any of you have been following me on Instagram or Facebook, you know that old churches and farm barns and houses, are my passion. The church is named Our Lady of Mt. Carmel’s Catholic Church. As I stood around photographing it, I couldn’t figure out why Mt Carmel was in the name, and I am still at a loss, but if I ask one of my relatives, I m sure they will know. I thought Mt Carmel was up by Langdon and the Canadian border, but I am not sure. More road trips to plan and adventure!
Probably I should backup and give you guys some background on how I got from doing my cancer web site to living in North Dakota instead of Seattle. I do get around don’t I.
Stay tuned! Pictures to follow and background data are coming!
