The Badlands are bad and we love them!

Wow! We were just amazed at the Badlands. I wasn’t sure what to expect, but didn’t realize it would be so big. Or that there would be so many overlooks and amazing views. Or that the hikes would be that long, and hot, but totally worth it. Or that Allen would chase a rattlesnake. (Well, I should have expected that one.) We spent the day there and realized we’d only made it through a quarter of the park! So we stayed right there at the campground (it is so convenient to live in an RV!) and we spent another fun day driving, climbing, and the kids did the Jr. Ranger program and earned another badge for their new Jr. Ranger vests!
Here are pics from the first day. (Snake pic warning!)

And more pics from the second day!
