Today's drive was relatively short because last night we decided to change our plans and instead of staying in Duluth, MN we stopped at Detroit Lakes. The severe thunderstorms had moved on ahead of us, although the winds were still very strong. It was really interesting watching the wind blow over the grass fields like waves on the ocean. It was a pretty quiet morning until I saw in the distance what looked like a huge cow standing on a hill-top. That's when we discovered Salem Sue.

This is Salem Sue:


She is the World's Largest Holstein Cow. Little did we know that North Dakota was home to three of the "World's Largest" attractions....
