Badlands National Park

Days 35 & 36: South Dakota to Pennsylvania

We did not wake up today knowing that we would drive straight home, but that is what we did over these two days. Through South Dakota, along the back roads of Iowa, through overnight storms in Illinois, and morning in the Appalachians and, finally, home around mid-afternoon.

Day 34: Badlands

Today we explored Badlands National Park. We explored a nature trail, witnessed paleontologists unearth an ancient pig-like mammal, and hiked around the cactus-coverd hills in the park.

Day 33: Black Hills

We hiked around Devils Tower this morning, then headed over to the Black Hills of South Dakota where we visited Custer State Park, the Crazy Horse Monument, Mount Rushmore, and arrived at the Badlands during a tornado-producing storm.
