What I Love About the Boom

The boom has given me a chance to return home to North Dakota. I'm originally from Hettinger and it's been great to go back and experience Dakota culture again and see people I know and love. But it's also been tough to see the landscape north of I-94 altered by rigs, trucks, dust. The "quiet beauty" of western North Dakota isn't so quiet anymore.
