2018—The Badlands

Theodore Roosevelt National Park in western North Dakota is where the Great Plains meet the rugged Badlands.   There is something mystifying and otherworldly about much of the topography of this area.  I’d never seen anything like the unusual geologic formations that define much of the area.  The textures, shapes, and colors throughout the park create unforgettable vistas.  Theodore Roosevelt, lived in this region for a time and said about it:

The Bad Lands grade all the way from those that are almost rolling
in character to those that are so fantastically broken in form and
so bizarre in color as to seem hardly properly to belong to this earth.

—Theodore Roosevelt

Here is one such formation that caught my attention.
