Jamestown, North Dakota

A few weeks ago we had to vacate our hotel room because they had previous bookings so we decided to head out of town and visit one of the local cities we had not previously seen.  We took a ride down to Jamestown.

First, I want to give high praise to the Comfort Inn in Jamestown.  We had a fantastic king suite with a sofa, coffee table, and dining table and chairs, as well as, a microwave and refrigerator.  The hotel and room were clean and neat.   The staff was friendly and the breakfast was great.  Everything about this hotel was fantastic and we do recommend it highly.

The reason we chose Jamestown to visit is because it is home to the world's largest buffalo monument, a pioneer village and  some rare white buffalo.

This is Dakota Thunder the world's largest buffalo monument.  It was created in 1959.  He is 26 feet tall and 46 feet long and weighs 60 tons.  He is constructed of steel beaming and reinforcing rods covered by a wire mesh and covered with gunite.

This is a very skinny white buffalo.

He really looks more like a cow except for being so big.

We saw this sign and I tried to get Larry to see if he could make it across the field but he wouldn't try.

This is the buffalo at the entrance to the pioneer village.

Next week I will share pictures of the pioneer village.
