Ole last shot of Theodore Roosevelt National Park.
Even more more Theodore Roosevelt National Park.
Even more Theodore Roosevelt National Park.
More Theodore Roosevelt National Park.
Looking into Theodore Roosevelt National Park.
This landscape is just breathtaking.
The sign had said "Scenic View"... it was not lying.
Can't drive past scenery like this without my camera shutter finger itching.
I have no idea what you call this type of formation, but I do know it's pretty.
Just stunning landscape.
More Badlands. I don't think they're so bad, but I guess that's because we have roads, air conditioning, and lots of Coca-Cola. It might indeed be pretty bad if you're a pioneer with livestock and wagon trains.
This is in North Dakota... apparently, we're at the Northern edge of the Badlands.
More hay and a small shed.
Another view of those round hay bails.
Ive been trying to get a shot of these big round hay bails for a couple thousand miles. Every time I'd see one I could get to, it was too late to stop. If I saw a field full of these where I ~could~ stop, I couldn't see a safe and/or legal way to get close enough. This photo has "been in my head" for so darn long.
More interesting geology here than I can shake a camera at.
Another angle on that "I don't see how it doesn't tip over" rock formation.
More rocks and trees.
This was someone's driveway... What you don't see is the gate with "no trespassing" that I'm shooting over.
I wonder how that rock formation stays upright. Seems like it should just tip over.
The way some of these rocks weather is just amazing.
Not much of a sense of scale here, but trust me, those bails of hay are not your typical size... they're probably 6' on the long side.
Just had to pull over here.
I'm starting to see why they call this "Big Sky Country"
It's quite arid out here, but not desert-like.
A dirt path leading back out of a lovely little picnic area.
Pulling into a small camp/rest area, we couldn't see that far, but it really was pretty.
Lots of fences out here.
Lot of miles today. Montana continues to surprise and delight us. North Dakota has some beautiful scenery as well. This is an HDR Redo of the original
Oh, I guess maybe we're NOT back to flat after all.
