Abandoned Karnak Farm

We spotted this farm on the way to Sheyenne River Bridge and made a point to circle back when we were done there. It is at coordinates 47.269772,-98.038936, just east of the near-ghost town of Karnak, North Dakota, in Griggs County.

Sheyenne River Bridge

Sheyenne River Bridge

This is the Sheyenne River Bridge, a railroad trestle at the north end of Lake Ashtabula, in the marshy transition between the lake and the Sheyenne River.  Built in 1912, it is 2,736 feet long, making it a little shorter than High Line Bridge in Valley City and a little longer than the Gassman Coulee Trestle in Minot. Railroad bridges played such a crucial role in the settlement of our state that we’ve chosen to occasionally feature some of them here, even if they’re not abandoned.
