We drove to Rugby 40 miles north last night to dine at the newly remodeled Dakota Farms restaurant. The walls where covered with granite tiles in carmel tones. The recessed lighting and wall sconces resembled salt lamps which promote the power of healing. It was all tastefully done and very busy.
We enjoyed an ice cold draft beer with our tender, juicy prime rib dinner. I'm sure we will be making this trip in the future when in the mood for a nice meal.
Driving home on this dark winters night I couldn't help but notice how bright and clear the stars where sparkling in the sky. Gazing to the north I noticed a finger of light streaming down but looking back I thought, no It's just a reflection from inside the cab of the Blazer. But driving further we noticed these strange lights changing shape and becoming brighter. We stopped along the gravel road and turned off our lights. I zipped up my coat, pulled up my hood and stood outside gazing up into the night sky to view the waves of light moving acrossed the sky. This is the first time I've seen the northern lights and I wouldn't have missed it for the world. We drove acrossed the frozen ice of Antelope Lake to get home and watched them from the darkness of the lake.
What an awe inspiring night this was. A wonderful dinner and the unexpected gift of viewing the Aurora Borialis on a winters eve.
