D getting blown away at Badlands
One of the things we liked best about Badlands National Park were the picnic shelters. The tables themselves were typical but they had a curved enclosure that not only protected you from sun from above but behind as well. These also provided some protection from the considerable winds that sweep through the Badlands. These were spread out over the course of the Badlands Loop Road and made great stops to grab something to eat, enjoy much needed liquid replenishment in this arid environment, and soak in the scenery out of your vehicle without being too exposed to the elements.
It was odd to be back in this arid desert-like environment again. It reminded us a lot of our eight weeks that spring spent in the US Southwest and in particular, of White Sands National Monument which also had spacey picnic shelters not so unlike these.
Favorite Dish: Cheese is great to carry in your cooler. It keeps well and goes well with most anything. It was rough going finding good bread in South Dakota so we opted for Wasa bread. Powder mixes like Gatorade are easiest to carry as they take up little space and you can make them up whenever you need them.
Comparison: least expensive
Directions: Scattered along Badlands Loop Road.
Price: less than US$10
