In the past, I have documented some dangerous rest areas around the country. On our honeymoon, Paul and I visited many more rest areas. One of those was Painted Canyon Rest Area, quite possibly the greatest rest area in the country. I mean, the place has a 4.5 rating on Trip Advisor. If there is any doubt as to why, look at the pictures on Trip Advisor – the view from the rest area is absolutely stunning. It’s part of Theodore Roosevelt National Park in North Dakota, and well worth a stop should you happen to find yourself driving across the country on I-94.
It’s also a dangerous rest area. At least, it was the day Paul and I were there, because there were bison everywhere.
