go west!

Carrie and Daniel answered the call to Go West! First day trek to the Badlands National Park with the obligatory stopover at Wall Drugs.

They were impressed with the Big Sky and wide open spaces. The treeless hills and miles of grasslands are so different from north Georgia. Daniel wants to move here :)

Wildlife spotted: Big horn sheep, prairie dogs, rabbit.

Badlands National Park, 242,756 acres of sharply eroded buttes, pinnacles, and spires blended with the largest undisturbed mixed grass prairie in the United States. ~Wikipedia

Does it look vaguely familiar, like maybe from a movie? Movies filmed here: Armageddon, Dances with Wolves, How the West was Won.
