The Rugged Outdoors

Badlands National Park, South Dakota

The diversity of Badlands National Park is simply amazing. I previously posted a number of photos that illustrate the jagged peaks and miles of rock eroded by the elements. This image shows the mounds and grasslands that are also prevalent in the park. It must be clear to you that Badlands is a must-visit park. It took me too long to get there, as it is in the middle of the country, and I have always tended to head west. I won't make that mistake again, and I will return to South Dakota again. I hope that you put up with my fascination with this place.
