    In the event that you decide to take a road trip and it takes you along I-90 in South Dakota you have to take some time to go into Badlands National Park, even if only to drive on the "scenic loop".

    The Badlands were originally named that by the Native American Indians that lived in the area for a number of reasons. This area has been nationally protected since 1939, and was finally made into a park in 1978.

    The geological formations of the land in this area are amazing. The colors that can be seen on the bluff faces will just blow you away. I have some pictures that I need to get uploaded of this area.

    There are 242,000+ acres to this area, and it is very rich in history. The park in its entirety has not yet been mapped geologically, this is important because it is known as an area with many fossils.

    One of the other projects at this park include the reintroduction of the Bison and Black Footed Ferret.

    A perfect place to visit if you don't want to encounter too many people, but get a chance to look at nature's beauty.

    Nobody throws a party like the Wagon Wheel!

    (Actually, I don't know if they actually throw parties at the Wagon Wheel. It just sounded like a nice thing to say.)

    plenty of free parking

Interior Warnings and Dangers

    When in the "Bad Lands" you need to take extra caution especially if you are curious and explore off the normal walking paths. The hills in the area are mainly made of clay and if you get into the bottom of a gully it is very difficult to get out. And the park rangers will not be too pleased with you either.

    Favorite thing: It's good to know that there's a place to buy stamps and mail your postcards close to the Badlands National Park.
