Badlands

In the late 80s, on our way home from a western vacation, we stopped for one night in Badlands National Park. The stop included a nighttime ranger guided walk. Our 2007 trip was a daytime visit as we were camping in the Black Hills. It started out as a chilly blustery day, but, fortunately the weather improved as the day went on. The badlands is a fascinating landscape of “sharply eroded buttes, pinnacles, and spires blended with the largest protected mixed grass prairie in the United States1.”

Mt. Rushmore, South Dakota

Images from our 2007 trip

(Audio: Pious Reflection by Paul Mottram)

One of our first stops on our 2007 trip, after visiting family in Nebraska, was the Black Hills of South Dakota.  While there, we visited Mount Rushmore national Monument.

We had stopped at Mount Rushmore once in the late 80s.  We were on our way home from vacationing in Wyoming and Idaho and our visit to Rushmore was a hurried afterthought.

This trip, we took our time and got the full benefit of the visit.  Mount Rushmore is worth seeing.
