Enchanted Highway and Ukrainian Cultural Institute

   The next morning we got an early start and back tracked about 50 miles to tour the Enchanted Highway. We had read about the large metal sculptures along a 32 mile stretch of winding country road off I 94 on the Roadside America website. . One of the sculptures can be seen from I 94. It is the largest of the metal art.  It is in the Guinness World Book Of Records as the largest scrap metal sculpture in the world. The road ends in the town of Regent with a population of 160 according to the 2010 censes. We visited the souvenir shop and had a treat of ice cream. Along the way  we met a couple in a motor home at several of the sculptures. They had an article with them that was published in the June 2012 Family Motor Coaching magazine. They saved the article to visit the sculptures if they every got out in this area. They gave us the article to read as they now crossed it off their bucket list. RV folks are the best.  There isn't much in the town of Regent, but there is an RV Park. It is just a bare bones grass lot with full hook ups for $20. a night, pay at the souvenir shop. See

   We are now about 90 miles from Medora  our starting point. So we found another country route to go to the city of Dickinson. We read about the Ukrainian Cultures Institute and wanted to visit it. Of course food had to involved. We had heard about their "three corners", "bottoms" or Pyrohy. We know them as pierogies.  After getting a informative tour of the small museum from a very outgoing lady we did purchase a two pound bag of the potato Pyrohy. The colorful intricate painted Pysanky Easter eggs were beautiful and the highlight of the museum.  See their web site at
