Badlands, South Dakota

The Badlands were AMAZING!  Like you were on another planet! This is one of the stops we made last summer.  We actually went there two days in a row, it is so large, and we still didn't see everything...but it's one of the coolest places I have ever been!



This was our first stop, you see Christian walking out to the end.  We were pretty high up.

At our second stop, you were able to climb down among the deposits, and so Christian did..and got stuck.  He couldn't figure out how to get back up.

He finally found a way back up, but was tired.....it was very hot there....

We drove toward the end of the Badlands, because I wanted to see if the bison were around.  We didn't see them on the first day, but we did see mountain goats...




The next day, we went back and we saw some bison

They didn't come too close to the road, but it was cool to see them!

Here are some random shots..






It's one of the coolest places I have ever been....I'm a big fan of science fiction movies, and I could so see this as a set of another planet.

This is super cool - the one shot of the goat that blends in with the mountain is awesome! I had to look twice because it looks like a fossil or something!

I've never been to The Badlands but have heard so many great things. Glad you got the chance to experience it. The goat's adorable.

I loved visiting the badlands when I was about 10 years old! One of my favorite family travel adventure memories :)
