Day 5 – The Rough Rider Country Spoon

So as not to seem biased toward one Dakota or another, I’m following up yesterday’s South Dakota spoon with one which proudly declares the state of North Dakota to be “Rough Rider Country.” That’d be after Teddy Roosevelt, who came to North Dakota for a 15-day hunting trip in 1883 and ended up purchasing a ranch there.

That there at the top of the spoon is the state capitol building in Bismarck, don’tcha know. I’ve never actually been to North Dakota, so I’ll have to take Google’s word for it. Fun fact: The movie “Fargo” was not filmed in North Dakota, but the infamous wood chipper is now on display at the Fargo-Moorhead Visitor Center. Aw, jeez.
