SUMMER ROAD TRIP, DAY 3
The Stark Beauty of Badlands National Park
I stood on the shifty rocks overlooking a wasteland of jagged peaks and otherworldly terrain. The wind was whipping violently at my face, but the landscape before me remained indifferent. What did the Indians think about such a scene as they were being chased from their lands by the white man?
At first glance, the unnatural formations appear to be impenetrable, but after further exploration we found a realm unto its own. Wildlife, flowers and vegetation blooms, but initially is overshadowed by the ethereal terrain.
Come explore the Badlands with us!
