South Dakota Badlands

If you have just spent the night in Wall, SD you are probably headed into Badlands National Park the next day. Get out of bed head on over to the Wall Drug Store and fill yourself with bacon, eggs and coffee. Prepare yourself for a day of driving, parking and, by all means, getting out and hiking some. The day I drove through it was raining. The rain & overcast light made the colors dense and saturated, but the dust quickly tunred into dense slippery mud that clung to your shoes adding 15 lbs to each while drastically reducing your traction.

There is a fascinating array of colors you can find in Badlands National Park... striking and unexpected

Millions of years of slow erosion cause the crenelated formations.

If you leave the park to the West you might come across some dinosaurs roaming about.
