I was totally unprepared for the pure beauty and diversity of the BadLands... Parked south of Rapid City (in our motorhome), near Mount Rushmore, we drove east on Interstate 90 to exit 131 and entered the park from the eastern gate. By the way, if you're 62 or older you can purchase a lifetime National Parks pass for $10.00. The pass allows you and a guest access to all National Parks in The US! When you look at the photos, note the horizontal stratifications and the shift in colors as we worked our way across the park. Next time, I want to go back and camp near the park so I can control the light/time-of-day for photography.
