Our first trip through South Dakota in 2010
was our very first year to travel full time.
We were still in vacation, hurry up and get there mode,
so we missed a lot of stuff. . .just whizzing through real quick. . .
not really slowing down enough to take it all in.
Badlands National Park was one of the places
we felt we did not give justice to on that trip
so, here we are. . .back to soak it all in.
This is Cedar Pass Lodge Campground
located inside the park. . .
50A electric only Pull Through,
easy access, although it was a little weird to have
the door opening into the street, and the picnic table
on the backside by the hookups. . .
but, all in all a great place to be.
I’m not going to post a lot of pics of the park for two reasons. . .
#1 – it was overcast the day we were exploring. . .
so justice is not done to the beautiful colors. . .
#2 – Like the Grand Canyon, this is one of those
places you simply must see for yourself. . .
pics simply do not show how spectacular it really is. . .
the prairies were beautiful. . .
except for. . .well, you know!
I was very, very observant. . .even on the boardwalks
I kinda wanted to see one. . .
but only from a distance. . .with my zoom. . .LOL
Bighorn Sheep up on the Ridge
Big Badlands Overlook
beautiful vistas around each curve. . .
couple more wildlife sightings. . .
and for our farewell evening. . .spectacular!
See you next time in South Dakota’s State Capitol. . .Pierre
