Badlands National Park



The Badlands in South Dakota were designated a national park on Nov 10, 1978. The Park encompasses some 240,000 acres of eroded buttes and pinacles (the Badlands) as well as the largest mixed-grass prairie in the U.S. The Badlands also contains one of the world’s richest mammalian fossil beds. Extinct rhino, horse, and saber-toothed cat are found there. I got to Badlands National Park in 1991.
