Snakes or monsters?

We wandered through the Little Missouri State Park this week.  An easy way to start getting in shape for hiking season. However, this time gave our imagination a jump-start, too. You never know what might jump out at you. This time, it wasn’t a mountain lion, but what was it?  

The Park opens May First.  Take a hike and find the monster head leering at you.

Jutting out at hikers at the Little Missouri State Park is this rock formation that looks like a prehistoric snake, dinosaur or monster.

Or are they dinosaurs?

Near the snake head rock, find a plateau of dinosaur eggs.  Or concretions.  You decide!

Near the prehistoric snake head rock, are these concretions. Or are they dinosaur eggs?


It’s hiking season, a chance to find your own snake head or dinosaur eggs. So, here are tips on what to wear.

What makes the Badlands so rugged?
