The Badlands

Today we drove to the Badlands and took in this stark and beautiful place. The visitors center was our first stop and we learned a brief history of the area. We had been wondering how pioneers came to settle this area. We also continued to learn how badly we treated the Native Americans as the nation expanded. It was all very interesting.

We drove the Badlands loop and took a lot of pictures.  The weather changed from cloudy, to sunny, and then back to cloudy as we made the loop. By the time we returned home we were seeing lightning, hearing thunder and dodging rain drops.

Sheep have no clue about the yellow line!
We were a bit nervous because the truck was brand new.

Did I ever tell you Linda hates snakes as bad as spiders?
