...Near the joining of the Yellowstone and Missouri Rivers,
hot as can be in summer sun, and shivering in the winters,
Williston was founded in 1902 and named for a railroader;
this is a vital city, busy, genuine and not a freeloader.

Near the area "home" of Teddy Roosevelt, the cabin stands lonely and stark,
in what is now the North Unit of the Teddy Roosevelt National Park.
The great man who founded the National Park System, he had a ranch nearby,
here was a chosen area, rugged, rough and a great place to just not drive by.
Tomorrow: Montana
