Badlands was badass. The plains literally just end and the Badlands begin, no soft transition, it just drops off into what you see below. It's always cool to see the layers in rock when erosion has done its dirty work over thousands of years. Really cool place to visit and just take in how long something like this must have taken to create.
Tomorrow we begin the long drive home to California. The first trip is coming to an end.
Also known as the presidents who make up Mt. Rushmore. We got to Mt. Rushmore at about 6am to catch the best sun light for photos. As hard as it was for me to get up early, it ended up being worth it and we had the whole place to ourselves! We even spotted a mama and baby mountain goat coming down the mountain.
