In the late 80s, on our way home from a western vacation, we stopped for one night in Badlands National Park.  The stop included a nighttime ranger guided walk.

Our 2007 trip was a daytime visit as we were camping in the Black Hills.  It started out as a chilly blustery day, but,  fortunately the weather improved as the day went on.

The badlands is a fascinating landscape of “sharply eroded buttes, pinnacles, and spires blended with the largest protected mixed grass prairie in the United States1.”
