Arvilla, ND: Not likely to have a traffic jam

If you get tired of all the hub bub and urban commotion in Larimore, ND, head on over to Arvilla, ND for a slower paced little. . . .ummmm. . . .excursion.

There are the thrills of the Hitching Post where you can sample your favorite beverage. . . .

And then make all your friends insanely jealous of your time at the Hitching Post by sending them lengthy letters about your wild adventures. . .

. . . before leaving town, be sure to enjoy the exotic scenery of the grain bins. . . and . . . .

. . . that's all there is in Arvilla, ND.

Ha, well I'll make sure to put that on my list of places to see before I die. ;)

As I am certain you will soon be hired by the Arvilla, ND Chamber of Commerce to do their PR, let me congratulate you now :)

Ha! Why does it seem like every small town has a place called the Hitching Post? I know of at least 4 small towns in Colorado that have them as well.

I love how there is a hitching post in just about every region of the US. God Bless this Country! Most towns have water towers - grain bins is interesting too (I guess).

Reminds me of Corinne, Utah, where my dad grew up. The equivalent of the Hitching post there, though was called "Murph's Inn." :) Love these shots.

This is the kind of town my dad would describe (as we were driving through) "Don't blink or you'll miss it". And, North Bend has 3 equivalents to the Hitching Post. Gotta have something to do when it rains, i guess.

Dear Pixelated,

It has come to our attention that you have recently posted regarding
out fine town. How could you possibly miss the petting zoo?
Then there is the mall, and IMAX theatres plus the Museum of grain and
distillery. Well, you probably just missed the ramp to the lower level
as you wizzed by with that fancy camera of yours. You see, most of
Arvilla is actually below the surface.

For additionbal information on our underground town, please see this web page:

His honour,
Tom the talking cat.

O.K. I don't get that last comment. Was that really Arvilla's mayor or was that Robert having a little fun?

Doesn't all this sightseeing make you happy you live in GF?
