This seemed to be the week to see the Badlands in a different way. Instead of the maze of bluffs, hills, and valleys, the far western end of Lake Sakakawea meets the Badlands. (Well, more exactly, the lake covers all but the highest points of the Badlands.) You’ll have to get off the beaten path and go down some gravel roads. But you’ll find scenery and wildlife that you would otherwise miss.
This week, we wrote about hot weather hiking. Just because the temperatures are high, does not mean you have to stay indoors. If you practice the 7 tips we listed, you can enjoy the green of the Badlands.
If you’re ready to capture this unusual green of the Badlands, a color that usually disappears by the first part of July, then, here are some ideas of how to take your best shot.
You can stay in your car and still get some great photo ops on Highway 22.
After you explore the Badlands this week, check out one of our Tasty Tuesday recommendations.
