Badlands:  South Dakota

South Dakota. The Badlands. We’d been driving since before dawn to get here. The entrance to the National Park was several miles back. Despite the short distance traveled we’d been in the park for several hours now. We finally paused on top of a butte overlooking the grasslands. Early morning light enhanced the colors of the rock formations that spread into the distance. All is quiet. A sign at the head of the trail warned of rattlesnakes. The only sign of life we’d seen to this point was an antelope stationed by the park entrance. We walked out along the jagged rocks to sit. Nothing else moved.
