North Dakota ~ Badlands National Park

We traveled to the Dakota Westmoreland Mine in Beulah, North Dakota yesterday. Laurence needed to work there. It's a fun trip, about 5 hours from Colstrip. "I never would have been President if it had not been for my experiences in North Dakota" - Theodore Roosevelt
Theodore Roosevelt said the badlands were "so fantastically broken in form and so bizarre in color as to seem hardly properly to belong to this earth."
So many fascinating land formations. They remind me in a small way of a place out past my parents house that we always called the HooDoos.
One thing for sure, you don't wish you could sleep on this trip!


  1. That is one of the few areas of the country that I haven't been in! It looks so beautiful!
