Badlands National Park Professional Review and Guide
"Spanning 80 million years of geologic history, the biggest area of badlands in the nation is an outstanding example of erosion and weathering. The fossil-rich area is both awe-inspiring in its beauty and, at the same time, dark and forbidding, despite traces of color in a mostly grayish white and barren landscape. Deep ravines and highly jagged ridges dot the terrain, and there is much to see in this unusual area.
Although the land appears inhospitable, the Badlands provide a home to an unexpected diversity of animals and plants. Fortunately, despite the impression of impenetrable natural barriers that one might get from its name, Badlands National Park is not difficult to see. This eTrail explains in detail how to tour the park. In addition to a park map the details include driving tours, outdoor recreation, accommodations, campgrounds, dining, and more."
