BTOW: Badlands NP

After driving across the high plains for what seemed like days, we rolled into Badlands National Park at 7pm. The visitor center was closed and the kids couldn't do the Junior Ranger program. But with the setting sun, we were treated to amazing shadows and light across the rock formations.

Elizabeth found one group of shadows that looked like a big smiley face. It was the beware of rattlesnakes signs that really got Josiah. At first he thought we were kidding; welcome to the Wild West!

Trail hiked: Window Trail
Animals seen: Chipmunk, Pronghorn Antelope, Prairie Dogs
