Oil Boom

We've been in the Bakken oil field on a couple of trips. You have the feeling of history in the making as folk rush to get a slice of this North Dakota, Montana, Manitoba, Saskatchewan phenomenon. We scored this old mug for a spendy $4 in an antique store in Valley City, ND. Riding along in the early morning when headed for Williston, ND, you are suddenly aware of these fireballs in the distance where they are flaring off gas from the wells.
