|Badlands is an otherworldly place, where dry
terrain has been eroded by wind and water,
creating an eerie landscape. Here a
slice of road twists through the Yellow Mounds,
formed when the ancient sea drained away and
the ocean mud was exposed to air.
|Homesteading was a tough existence. The
government bet you 160 acres against 18 dollars
that you’d starve to death before you lived on the
land for five years.
|Windswept and cold, but stunning.|
|We had a good round of “give me a home,
where the buffalo roam” as we drove the
car slowly with Dan and Vicki waiting for
a different kind of traffic jam.
