The Badlands!

Posted by
Steve Rice (Olympia, United States) on 30 August 2017 in Landscape & Rural.

On my way to the Midwest, I stopped for a few days at Badlands National Park in South Dakota. It was raining when I left home but, I got ahead of the weather system as I drove east. However, the weather was moving east, also. I would wake up to rain after a night on the road.

It was beautiful when I arrived at the park and got my bearings. The weather report mentioned rain over night and possibly snow the next morning. Having been through here years earlier, I had planned on a windy and cold time. Snow, at the end of April, wasn't in the plan though. I thought it was Spring. ;-)

No matter how many photos i see of this place, I still find it thoroughly extraordinary. Love your image here - it has a fine understated nature to it that allows to fully get into the detail of these amazing formations.
