Theodore Roosevelt National Park and the Very Badlands (Day 52)

September 7th, 2009 2 comments

Theodore Roosevelt National Park is exactly the same as Canyonlands in Utah if you take Canyonlands and then:

  • Smash it down a bit.
  • Remove any arches or bridges.
  • Sepia-tone it.
  • Add infinite bison.

There are also prairie dogs, at least one dead porcupine, and wild horses at TRNP.

tr_cloud-vHey look! They have clouds in North Dakota, too!

tr_clouds-in-riverAnd sometimes those clouds get reflected in the Missouri River.

tr_missouri-riverOther times, the Missouri River is somewhat less reflective.

tr_badland-overviewBadlands, with neither river nor clouds.

tr_lone-treeLittle tree on the prairie. By itself. Next to a double-track pathway.

tr_wild-mustangsMy trip through the wild mustang drive-thru.

I camped there for a night — there are a lot of trains that pass nearby, but it only cost $10, so that mitigates.

Should probably say something profound, but I’m very sleepy and am getting up in 6.5 hours, so maybe you can make something up for yourself. (Thx.)
