I played hooky yesterday, as Gary was gone for the day! Left home about 9:00 a.m. and headed to Badlands National Park. It is only about 1.5 hour drive, so easy to do!
Weather was so nice, not hot in the morning. I know many of you have seen this place over the years, but I never tire of it! I LOVED visiting with the tourists again, and always try to do that every time I go!
Let us begin!

I always stop in the little town of Interior right before entering the park. The Cowboy Corner is a nice gas station and friendly people inside! This is the
first time I noticed this little church in Interior. Had to get a pic of it!

In the coming posts in this thread, I will show you some of the highway through the park. It helps to give you some perspective on how big this place is!

I have never been here when the yellow shrubs are blooming. It was wonderful!! Can't believe those grow in this soil!

When I got to this overlook location, I noticed some people climbing on some of these cliffs. I have stopped at this spot before, but didn't realize this was possible. So
I was of course going for that! Was a nice climb! I loved the great views and pictures! Some more in the next post!

After I climbed down (carefully), and moved on in the Park, I saw a lot of cars stopped on the road. I knew from past experience what this meant. ANIMALS!! I was rewarded with some beautiful sheep! Enjoy those and then a few pics in my all time favorite spot!

I enjoyed my last full stop, visited with two older gentlemen. They wore hats that made me think they were not from around here! When they started talking, it was easy to hear a "New Jersey" accent! Very nice guys, out west for a vacation for the first time. I told them about a few places that I thought they would enjoy. Snapped a pic of them leaving...

A great drive, and I visited with some nice people from Minnesota, Michigan and a few other states!

Betty, many thanks for sharing these beautiful pictures and great experience with us.
The views and scale of these formations are truly exceptional.

I came home on I-90 from Wall to Rapid City. 80 mph is the speed limit! Traffic wasn't too bad, I get to Rapid City and about ready to exit. I get a call from a friend. Gary has a challenger, and he calls me. He is driving in his Ram and goes by me. Of course he knows its me! GO MANGO plate give me away every time! Such a fun day!!

Thanks for posting those pics last month Betty, it was how we decided where we would vacation this year. In fact, we were in the Badlands the day before you! It's an absolutely amazing experience. And then an hour down the road is the Black Hills...I could live here happily, forever! Unfortunately we start heading back tomorrow morning, but hope to be back again. Might have to stop one last time at Wall Drug on the way back, lol.

Thanks to you both for your nice posts! Too bad I couldn't have gone Sunday and seen that beautiful Challenger! No place in the world like the Badlands!!
