Badlands Wayside Picnic Table

The Badlands in South Dakota can sneak right up on you. Travelling from the east, prairies stretch for miles on end. The occasional tree stands out against an otherwise flat and windswept landscape. Then comes the Badlands. Barren level ground gives way to an unexpected collection of buttes, spires and other outcrops. The stark monotony of the eastern part of the state gives way to an array of shapes and colors. These picnic tables stood on the edge of a butte in the middle of the park. Their structure serves as a compass for the endless wind and overbearing sun that sweeps the landscape.
