Brilliant Greens of the North Dakota Badlands!
The North Dakota Badlands are brilliant green after ample rains in May and June! Thanks to Michael David Hanson II for sharing his photos of the iconic Little Missouri River in the North Unit of Theodore Roosevelt National Park!
Little Missouri National Grasslands
Theodore Roosevelt National Park is nestled along the history rich Little Missouri River which cuts through the North Dakota Badlands and the largest national grassland in the United States, the Little Missouri National Grasslands. South of Watford City, and about seventy five miles north of the South Unit near Medora, this rugged area is home to bison, big horn sheep, deer, and Texas Long Horns!

Beautiful and underrated park!
Ashley, you are absolutely right. The entire region is undersold. But of course, those of us who use the region for recreation don’t mind having it all to ourselves. Yeah, selfish, I know.
