Road Trip - The Badlands - Part 2 and the End of the Road Trip series
Camera: K5 Photo Location: South Dakota 
Posted By: daacon, 08-25-2013, 10:13 AM

Well we have come to end of Dave and Katie's most excellent adventure. Here are the last of the Badland shots. The next day we were on a plane back home. That is a whole other story - let's just say we don't often get to see the Atlantic ocean on the way home (plane cancellation , only way to get home that day was from Rapid City ==> Chicargo ==> Newark ==> Edmonton, Alberta ).

Thanks for indulging me and thanks for stopping by to look and thanks to those that commented throughout the series. It was a great time, some good Daddy / Daughter bonding time and I would do it again in a heartbeat.

The first couple are two of my favorites from the entire trip

#1


#2


#3


#4


#5


#6


#7 - This guy ran all the way back and I thought he was going to have a heart attack Ncie of him to run out there to offer a sense of scale though.


#8 - This one reminded me of the worlds toughest par 3


#9 - It really is an alien landscape out there.


#10


#11


Hope you enjoyed the series , we did We tried to jam in as much of the country we could in the 4 short days we were there.

The whole series was fantastic Dave and I enjoyed re-visiting some of our old haunts. Thanks so much for posting these. It was also nice to see your daughter and I am glad you had a great time bonding.

Enjoyed all of your pictures, I agree with those first couple of shots on this thread - great pictures. You have reminded me of when I was stationed in that area in the mid 1990's. Thank you for that as we plan on retiring in that area and what great things to see and do there.

Such great shots to end the series with. It really does look like another planet out there. I love the colors in #5, especially in contrast to #9.

Looks like you'd need a few spare balls on #8. Speaking of golf, have you ever been to the Devil's Golf Course in Death Valley?

Might be Badlands but the scenic value of them is very good.

Great bunch of pics, Buddy. The Badlands - aptly named - are bleak yet compelling. I remember as a boy, I was tossing some of the local clumps of hard soil during our visit; one of these hit my dad's leg rather hard. I was in the doghouse for a time.

Thanks monoloco - it was overcast most of the early afternoon then the clouds offered small pockets of blue.
