At the same exit as Menoken Indian Village is a sign for McDowell Dam and Nature Park. Believe it or not, it was less thrilling than Menoken. And it was 20 minutes off of the highway. And I didn’t actually see a dam. You can see 360 degree pans of everything at the park by visiting http://www.realnd.com/mcdowelldamindex.htm.

On my way to Montana, about six hours into day two, I decided to stop somewhere and stretch my legs. I saw a sign for Menoken Indian Village State Historic Site. Perfect!
Directions, from Chicago:
1. Drive west on I-94 for about 14 hours.
2. Take exit 170 in North Dakota and make an immediate right onto an unnamed dirt road.
3. Drive up and down this unnamed dirt road until you realize you need to turn onto another unnamed dirt road.
That’s it! You made it!
