Montana - North Dakota - A Great Fracking Run

The Bakken Formation and fracking has changed the landscape in northwestern North Dakota and northeastern Montana. An area of badlands and grasslands and remoteness still has all of that, but it now has pumps spread all around and people in nearby towns that have relocated to follow the jobs. It also has some better maintained dirt roads that I took advantage of to explore this once booming industry. But mostly I just ran and enjoyed the solitude and the grasslands and interesting hills. I also benefitted because I heard it was the warmest temperature recorded here for this day in March - 68 degrees. So the Bakken beckons.
