My brother Tony just sent me some photos he took of the ski jump near Devils Lake that these North Dakota Norwegians used about 100 years ago because they missed their ski slopes back in Norway. Obvious to see, more than a little rickety now and years of not enough snow to cover the old, wooden planks. Our Midwest country was filled with dare devils who crossed the Atlantic to venture into Dakota grain farming but also to tame the wilds of the prairie. My Mom comes from a very rich and proud heritage!!!
