South Dakota’s Badlands National Park

by Jenna Schnuer on May 9, 2012

The photos (shot May 1-4) tell a small part of the story. To just barely start to really see South Dakota’s Badlands–a massive unimaginable otherworldy place–requires days of driving, hiking, and just looking. The first day is all jaw drop. After that, it’s still all jaw drop but you start to recognize the Badlands’ massive formations, you remember to look down to see bees in the wildflowers, you watch for dramatic battles between the bighorns, and remember to stand still long enough to see how the sun upends the landscape’s colors. Oh, there are rabbits, too. How long would it take to fully understand the Badlands? That may not be possible.

You nailed it, m’dear. And the battling rams shot is fanfriggintastic. Also the one with the silhouetted guys taking photos. (I wonder if I will ever be able to spell silhouetted without looking it up.)

Thanks, m’friend. And thanks for lending your feet and form to the photo-taking sessions. Was so happy you flew in to wander part of SD with me.

Wow, this looks great! Your road trip sounds amazing. I see you started in Teaneck — I’m in Hoboken. 🙂
