The first day of the year is one of those brilliant North Dakota winter days. The weather was mild and the sky was crystal blue.
There is an odd stretch of Belmont Avenue where the trees switch from the berm between the road and the sidewalk to inside the sidewalk. I have no idea why this is. The trees are mature and the same size as the trees on the berm; so it’s hard to imagine that they date to before or after the other trees on Belmont.
