|From 2015 08 15 South Dakota|
Today's photo-of-the-day is from the Badlands National Park in South Dakota. The Great Plains stretch forever, endless grasslands from Canada to Texas and from the Rockies to the Mississippi. South Dakota is in the middle of all that nothingness. You drive for hundreds of miles on I-90 through flat grasslands, then turn off the interstate and within a few short miles you are faced with the scene in this photo. The Badlands are amazing.
