Weekend Getaway A Taste of Medora, North Dakota By Amy Piper

M

edora, North Dakota, is an offthe-beaten-path, seasonal town. Often, North Dakota remains the last state visited by those earning the “Visited All 50 States” badge, as North Dakota is the least-visited state in the union. But a second look re veals, Medora, North Dakota, as a hidden treasure for history buffs, outdoor lovers, and photographers. History buffs learn the story behind the town’s namesake, Medora de Mores. Theodore Roosevelt, 26th President of the United States, has strong roots in Medora. Outdoor lovers appreciate golf at one of America’s Top 100 golf courses, Bully Pulpit Golf Course. They explore Theodore Roosevelt National Park through a scenic drive or hiking. For photographers, the panoramic landscapes are a dream. Wild horses, buffalo, elk, over 185 species of birds, and those cute prairie dogs in their own small town make it an exciting area for wildlife photographers. Here’s how I spent my recent Medora weekend getaway.

Unwind at Medora Uncork'd We kicked off our weekend at Medora Uncork’d by enjoying a glass of Aronia Berry wine from Wolf Creek Winery in Cole Harbor, North Dakota, pairing that with a BBQ Blueberry Meatball flatbread appetizer. It was just enough to get us through nine holes of golf.
