Badlands National Park

South Dakota’s Badlands National Park offers a quintessential badlands landscape of receding mounds and buttes and bluffs and ridges and cliffs. In early-morning and late-day light, the scene becomes a complex and beautifully chaotic collection of shadows and light, and of striations of colors from yellow to orange to red.
