(MEDORA, ND) Today the Theodore Roosevelt Medora Foundation (TRMF) announced that three best of the west entertainers are bringing Medora-style, family entertainment to the four corners of the state with 13 shows in 10 communities between Nov. 28 and Dec. 13, 2015.
A Magical Musical Medora Christmas variety show will feature three of the top performers to have graced the stage of the Burning Hills Amphitheater, including Medora Musical co-hosts Bill Sorenson and Emily Walter. They will be joined by yodeler extraordinaire Jared Mason.
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.
If you haven’t heard, North Dakota Tourism came out with some fantastic new ads promoting our great state. One of our favorite’s shows the Theodore Roosevelt National Park in all its majesty. The ad goes on to show many of our favorite land marks and gets everybody here in Medora excited about going on a hike.
The ad also got us thinking, what are some of the must see spots when you go to TRNP? After much debate, here is our top four:
1. The Maltese Cross Cabin
Originally located about seven miles south of Medora in the wooded bottom-lands of the Little Missouri, the Maltese Cross Ranch was one of the places Theodore Roosevelt stayed during his time in North Dakota. Now located at the TRNP South Unit Visitors Center, this is a must-see window into the past, and the President’s time in the Dakota Territory.
2. Wind Canyon
Enjoy hiking this nature trail alongside a wind-sculpted canyon as you climb to the best views of the Little Missouri River. It’s the Park Ranger’s best kept secret for watching sunsets.
3. Buck Hill
Located one mile north of Paddock Creek, Buck Hill is a great vantage point to see wild horses or roaming buffalo. It’s a steep trail, but it’s worth every step.
4. Petrified Forest
Located in the remote northwest corner of the South Unit, this hike takes you through ancient petrified forests and badlands wilderness. The loop includes the North and South Petrified Forest Trails as well as the Maah Daah Hey.
These are just four of the many great hikes TRNP has to offer. If biking is more your style, bicycles are welcome on the paved roads of TRNP, and for the more experienced rider, the Maah Daah Hey trail is an exciting ride. This summer get the family to put down their phones and pick up their feet by coming out to Medora and going on a hike or bike ride through the amazing Badlands.
Oh, here is that video that got everybody excited in the first place!
President Theodore Roosevelt is as excited as everyone else about Josh Duhamel’s naming as the “voice of North Dakota Tourism” and he wanted to telephone Josh to say “job well done.”
It’s official: Josh Duhamel is the voice of North Dakota Tourism’s new advertising campaign. In Medora, we couldn’t be more excited for Josh to represent the state — and we hope to see him in Medora again this summer, too! “Bully!”
Josh even recorded a greeting for viewers of the campaign, with his own rendition of Theodore Roosevelt’s favorite phrase, “Bully!”
Josh enjoys a cup o’ Joe at Theodore’s Dining Room in Medora. Do you?
