As I was planning our return trip to Yellowstone, I decided I needed to incorporate some new places into the trip. First I added Devil's Tower, then I couldn't see Devil's Tower without travelling over to Mount Rushmore...then I figured "well, we'll be in South Dakota anyway...why not add in the Badlands?" It continued on like that for awhile, it was a very busy trip, but that is how I tend to plan them. Anyway, needless to say, it was a good decision. Badlands National Park is now a favorite of mine, even though our stay was brief, it was enough time to get a sense of the place and realize how truly special it is.

    Stop it, I can't possibly get to all these beautiful US National Parks! The badlands area looks amazing - and I have to agree that rental car freedom is the way to go. Even 'Wall Drug' looks familiar, maybe I'm thinking 'South of the Border'!?

    What a stunning place! Love your photos as always. Did you at least have your free ice water at Wall Drug?!

    Wow, it does look beautiful here. Bobby needs to get to the Dakotas to complete his 50 states, so we'll have to stop and see the Badlands. And Wall Drug too just because it does suck so much:D.
