These bottles were behind a bar in Medora, North Dakota. This is the town that Theodore Roosevelt traveled to from New York in 1883 to hunt buffalo. It was here that he became a cattle rancher and found adventure. He loved the rugged beauty of the land and it brought him back again and again. Theodore Roosevelt credited his North Dakota experiences as the basis for his ground breaking preservation efforts and the shaping of his his own character. As president in 1901-09 he translated his love of nature into law - he established the US Forest Service and signed the 1906 Antiquities Act under which he proclaimed 18 national monuments and worked with congress to create five national parks, 150 national forests and dozens of federal reserves. Over 230 million acres of protected land were the result of his efforts. The Theodore Roosevelt National Park was not the great man's own creation. It was established in 1947 as a national memorial park to honor President Roosevelt and to provide a place for us to experience his beloved Badlands in our own ways. Medora is the entrance point to the Theodore Roosevelt National Park - North Unit. Forgot to mention the name of the bar - it was The Little Missouri Bar (Thank's, Jan!)

Having traveled through both North and South Dakota as well as Montana one can understand the impact that the rugged landscape can have on an individual and obviously in Theodore Roosevelt's case he carried that influence through to reality.

Now that is an array of bottles and then there is all that currency above the bottles... I did a Google and I think I found the same bar but there was no money above the bar so that currency must be a new thing to the bar.

A second search found the actual bar... Little Missouri Saloon Dining Room with all that money apparent in the various pictures I looked at but nothing on why the currency was hanging there.

Bar scenes attract my attention also, Diane. So many bottles and so many colors adds to the excitement of the scene for me. The variety of many items keeps me eye moving all over the image.
