Yesterday I drove the motorhome the about 90 miles from Bemidji to Crookston, Minnesota.

We continued traveling along U.S.Highway 2 West.

Labor Day Weekend Monday Morning traffic was light…


The area is thinly populated. We passed through only a few small towns like this one..


We arrived just before noon in Crookston and parked alongside the railroad tracks behind the VFW…


After lunch we decided to take a walk around town and shoot some photos…





We saw this sign on the back of a large building…


The front of the building turned out to be the Grand Theatre. Built in 1911, it remains as the oldest continuously operating theatre in the United States. You can read about this place by clicking this link…


They allowed us to take a few photos before the afternoon movie started…





This old church has been boarded up…it apparently ran out of customers…


Adjacent and behind the church we stumbled upon Central Park. A city park that has camping…


We liked it so much, I went back and got the motorhome…


Here’s the usual dinette photo…


We continued with our walk along the river…






Central Park proved to be a pleasant and quiet place. We enjoyed our stay here very much…


Yesterday was a decent weather day. 73 degrees with 43% humidity. I could still stand lower humidity. Forecast for today is 86 degrees. YUK!

We’ll continue our westward travel later this morning.

Enjoying pretty campgrounds is another joy in the life of a full-time RVer!

On October 27, 2012, I created a two-minute video titled America The Beautiful. The music America The Beautiful is by Christopher W. French. The photos, which I randomly selected, are from the states of Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Mississippi, Montana, New Mexico, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Texas, Tennessee, Washington and West Virginia (not shown in that order)…are mine. Yup, That’s me standing in front of the Post Office in Luckenbach, Texas…Y’all!
