We couldn't be all the way in South Dakota without making a stop in the Badlands. We were only there for 2-3 hours because we had to get on the road (and it started to rain). I was a bit sad to leave before getting in a good hike. But I'm glad we made the effort to drive through the park. It's beautiful because of its massive views and the stark contrast of the green meadowlands next to the giant mounds of dirt and sand. The boys LOVED climbing on the structures. It was fun for them to be so high but it wasn't scary high because the worst that would happen is that you would slide down some sand.
See Nathan way up there!
These are some of my favorite pictures from the trip.
And last, but not least, Nathan's shoes, with his toe poking through. Poor baby.
From here, we started our trek south :(
All good things must come to and end. We left tired, but full of memories from all we had experienced.
