Badlands National Park is a vast and beautiful landscape of sedimentary rock, sand, and soil that has been eroded by wind and water. Native grasses grow in and around the formations with their brilliant colors that range from red, orange, and yellow to purple, brown, and white.
This uniquely contrasting landscape reminds you that you are in the scenic state of South Dakota. Interpretive walks at roadside stops throughout the park inform the visitor of the geology of the region, as well as highlight the abundant wildlife that have called the Badlands home for thousands of years.

As a Minnesotan I took a road trip across South Dakota, boring drive, there isn’t really anything from Souix Falls to Wall. Just farm land and more farm land. The best part is counting the Wall Drug signs. I definatly recommend Stopping in Wall, and doing some shopping at Wall Drug.
Also That same day I saw the bad land. OMG!! They are so cool, and they come out of no where. You are driving and only seeing farms then BAM Bad Land. LOL! It was my favorite part of the trip and there are lots of look outs so you can take tons of great photos.
