It is a beautiful May morning when I wake up in a hotel bed in Plymouth, Minnesota. I lay there for just a moment, trying to wrap my head around what is happening.

Within the past 24 hours my world has been flipped upside down; I have turned 18, left my hometown, said goodbye to my friends and family, not quite completed high school, and am starting my first professional job as a Burning Hills Singer in the Medora Musical. Panic is about to set in when I rip myself from the comfort of my bed and dress myself for the day. Read more →

One of the things I love about travelling is discovering the hidden treasures in every region, places that might not be as well-known as the big cities but that have their own special magic and appeal. Recently my boys and I visited North Dakota for a week and were able to discover one of those hidden treasures first-hand: the tourist town of Medora, just outside Theodore Roosevelt National Park.

You’ve checked into the Rough Riders Hotel, picked up the the perfect souvenirs for your best friend at the Rough Riders Gift Shop and treated yourself to the best ice cream this side of the Missouri. Your’re going to a Theodore Roosevelt Salute to Medora and of course you already have your tickets to the Medora Musical. Only thing is, you still have a couple of hours to kill. What do you do? If watching your smiling kids do all the running and jumping while you sit and relax sounds amazing, saunter on over to the Family Fun Center.

This blog was written by Burning Hill Singer Damon Fichter. It is his first blog in a series of blogs from North Dakota Burning Hills Singers.

I’m currently in a van packed, full of Burning Hills Singers, on our way to Watford City where we will perform at a school and nursing home. As I see everyone relaxing and chatting during our ride, I sometimes forget we are all here for a job. Really?! I am getting paid to sing and dance with my friends. I am only 21 and I feel like I have one of the best jobs in the world. Read more →

It was an action packed weekend in Medora! Our annual car show brought out gear heads from across the state and the weather was perfect for trips to the Musical and Theodore Roosevelt National Park.

However, the event that stole the show this weekend was the Cowboy Mounted Shooting Competition. Words can’t describe how unique and awesome this event was, so we will let this video do the talking.

Go for a ride with Bailey Elkins below, who had the fastest run of that stage!
