Badlands Tour 2022

Simply spectacular! Photos can’t do it justice. We started at the northeast entry and stopped at almost every pull off and viewpoint traveling west on the north “loop” Hwy 240 through the park. When we reached the western entry, we turned around and did the same coming back. It’s wonderful that you can see so much from the comfort of your car if you choose. We like to take some strolls into the landscape too. There were many RVs driving through but not too crowded for everyone to enjoy the scenery. We took our car since we are camped only 20 miles away. The day was just nicely warm in the 80s. The sky was so blue with occasional clouds to add interest. The colors really popped! We stopped at Cedar Pass Lodge for Vegetarian Fry Bread Tacos and then over to the visitor center to see the working fossil lab and other displays. Then back on the road to our campground after a perfect day. Such beauty! We are so blessed to be able to continue on our travels and see more of God’s creation.

Those colors
Wow!

Yellow hills from plant matter when this area was jungle-like eons ago
Stretches for miles and miles
Color graduations are so beautiful
Look like fairy castles
On top of the world
Into the landscape
More of those yellow hills
A great day!

You can hike and climb freely in any area of the park… Just use caution
