Today's drive took us to the Badlands of SD -- geologically speaking fairly new formations. It is also a wealth of prehistoric mammals. Dramatically different scenery. Can you imagine being a homesteader back in the early 1900's trying to farm this area. The natural grasslands of the area often had roots more than 4' deep along with minimal rainfalls, lots of wind, and HOT summers.
And of course a trip to the Badlands would not be complete without a stop at Wall Drug ---
