Day Six - Culbertson, Montana to Floodwood, Minnesota (599 miles)

The speed continued until we hit the North Dakota state line. A speed limit was now posted; 70 mph. The wheat fields gradually gave way to sunflower fields, and once we got east of Minot the topography flattened out significantly. There did not seem to be much to see here, we stopped three times in North Dakota, all for gas. In Minnesota the plains began to give way to some forests, and some lakes (imagine that). U.S. 2 runs through the Chippewa National Forest and provides some good scenery. We did pass over the Headwaters of the Mississippi River where it looked like a creek. As dusk crept up on us, we rode into Floodwood. One motel in town, and plenty of rooms were available.
