Default Badlands on the way to Sturgis

My wife and I just returned from Sturgis, South dakota. This was my first trip there, and a paradise for a biker. I have included a few pics. On the way there, we took a ride through the Badlands National Park, near Wall, South dakota.

1) A Prairie Dog. There were colonies of these guys everywhere.


2) A metal sculpture of a horse.


3) An old wagon


4) Some Badlands landscapes


5)


6)


7)


8)


9)


10)


11)


12) And last, but not least, the sign people actually heed.


It was a fun trip, I hope to go again next year. There is too much to see in one trip.

Thanks Phil. I plan to go back next year, and I will be more prepared. I didn't even have a tripod with me on this trip! AND, I didn't take NEAR enough pictures.

You got that right! It's pretty flat down here. I really wanted to stay longer.

Cool shots Robert. I like the colors in the badlands. Good thing you saved enough room in the saddlebag for your camera.
Did you get any pics of the real wildlife?
My oldest granddaughters other grandpa played there two years ago with a blues band and he had some pretty wild stories to tell.
