Tori Jane is a storm chaser, writer, photographer, and the village idiot - in that order. When she's not out and about dancing with the meanest storms on planet Earth for funsies she can be found wandering, shooting landscapes, writing, editing photos, and otherwise up to no good. Legend has it that she can also be occasionally spotted typing up short bios in the third person, but those rumors are unsubstantiated.
Nestled within the beautiful state of North Dakota is a scenic backway that, should you decide to take it one day, will take you on a unique adventure unlike any you might have had before. It’s not a “byway” – it’s a “backway” – and the difference is that a byway is paved whereas a backway is a nice, rugged dirt road adventure. You might have heard of it, you might not have; either way, it’s quite the bucket list trip, and it can be done pretty quickly, too, given that you don’t stop anywhere. The Chan SanSan Scenic Backway in North Dakota is one amazing drive you’ve got to do at least once!
