Theodore Roosevelt National Park is divided into two units, about 80 miles apart. We spent a full day in the larger South Unit (next to the town of Medora, ND and I-94) and a few hours in the North Unit. Although the South Unit offers visitors a good appreciation for the park’s geology and wildlife, I recommend also going to the North Unit for a short hike and beautiful scenery if time allows (added bonus: you might literally be one of the only people in the park, as we were – a nice change from the crowds of Yellowstone!)

At first visibility was terrible, but as we spent some time around the lake the snow cleared just enough to reveal the surrounding mountains.04.14.22 : Lonesome hiker. Probably my favorite photo from the hike to Loch Vale. Approaching the lake, the winter trail follows the path of a frozen stream that lies somewhere below the snow.
