Really, the western and eastern sections of the Badlands 'North Unit' are almost like two different parks. While we cruised along the western portion, most of our views were down onto the plains below as well as gently eroded peaks and valleys. However, once we descended beyond White River Valley Overlook the landscape changed entirely to one of multiple jagged peaks now towering above us as the road weaved its way between them. I found these peaks to be more visually spectacular because they are 'in your face' whereas the earlier more distant vistas gave a grander perspective of the vastness of the area. In a way, it was nice to end the trip with a 'bang' instead of a 'whimper'!
