The Badlands 3

We’ve covered over half of the almost 32 mile Badlands loop and stopped at most of the 14 overlooks along the way.  The eclipse is over, so that light is back to normal.  I’m glad you were able to take the time to drive with me.  85% of people who rated the loop for Trip Advisor gave it an “Excellent” rating, 12% “Very Good.”  I heartily agree.  This eastern part of the loop shows off a bit more of the grassland part of the park.  Sit back and enjoy.

    This series has been a lot of fun to follow, Janet. I would dare to rename the area “The Not-so Badlands”. Thanks for bringing us along on your journey this Summer.

    Beautiful country and beautiful photos of it. I like the one in the middle with yellow daisy with the sea of grass behind it. I like the contrast of the colour with the rock in the background. Very nice.

  12. Anabel Marsh says:

    I really love this sort of landscape. We visited the Canadian Badlands round Drumheller this year. Great pictures. (Visiting via Jo’s Monday Walk post.)

    • Thanks for the visit, Anabel. I’d love to visit more of Canada one of these days, but I’m glad you could visit the Badlands with me. (I realize from your blog title that you’re not from Canada, but you did visit there.)

        I am from Scotland but we spent 3 weeks in Canada this summer. I’ve also visited many US states, but not either of the Dakotas so this was interesting.

      • I’ve been in Scotland a few times: once in the mid-seventies when I went all the way to Inverness and Skye and more recently, a visit with our younger daughter to Edinburgh. I’d love to visit again and go more places. It’s a lovely country.

  13. Hammad Rais says:

    Serene beauty this is, Janet. I have no words 🙂

  14. Su Leslie says:

    Wonderful to share this journey with you Janet. It’s the only respite I’ve had from the relentless rain. 🙂

    • We’re hoping for some rain soon, Su, although I can do without the relentless part. 🙂 Looks like it might be cloudy all day but not rain, unfortunately. Glad you came along for the ride.

  15. […] my last post about the Badlands, this plant appeared in one shot.  I thought it was worth a closer look, so […]

What do you think? I'd love to hear your thoughts on this, that or the other thing.
