Don't know why they call this the Badlands, but it has the most spectacular views I have ever seen. Pictures cannot do it justice, you all have to just come and see for yourselves. Robin, you just stay in the car, there are Rattle Snake warnings! We started this day with a beautiful sunrise.
And I'll just post pictures, words mean nothing.
There was this one lone mountain goat looking at all the beauty.
Driving around the other side of the scenic loop we found a herd of mountain goats. Don't you just love their little white "bums"?
We hiked around some looking for the snakes, but we didn't find any. I could have just sat and stared at this area all day, but it is very desert like and hot. BEAUTIFUL!!
