After my 48-hour adventure to Minnesota, Wisconsin and North Dakota, I have a few general observations:

  1. People of the Upper Midwest are genuinely nice and their driving manners are exemplary!
  2. Frontier Airlines was a great discovery!  Low fares, new  planes, nice people, and flies from regional airport in Central NJ—I’ll definitely be flying with them again!
  3. Camera wise, I didn’t see any significant difference between the Canon 5DMKII versus the 5DS…just bigger files.
  4. Completing my 50 states in North Dakota was wonderful—saving the best for last!
  5. Despite the rainy weather for half of my trip, and post-peak autumn conditions, the landscape was beautiful and worth a return visit another time.
