I always thought that 'the badlands' was the name of a park in South Dakota. Actually, 'badlands' are wind smoothed layered rocks that appear throughout the world. Of course one of the most famous examples of a badland is of course the Badlands National Park in South Dakota. Once again, I visited this park 30 years ago. My memory was moderately accurate this time.
Here is the park today.
We attended a talk so that the boys could get their junior ranger badges.
