This patch of land

I photographed the 21st annual Taylor Horse Fest Saturday (it’s exactly what it sounds like) and had to appreciate how completely North Dakotan it is to “honor the animal that played such a major part” in the roughly 200-person town’s heritage.

A journalist I respect very much gave me some interesting advice last week: “…keep note of what makes this patch of land different from the rest of the USA.” I’m making it my goal to remember this throughout the rest of my time here.
