Solitude In The Badlands

Badlands National Park, Interior, South Dakota

Solitude In The Badlands

Nancy took this photograph while on our last Sea Explorer summer expedition a few years before she retired as a teacher. On that 40-day trip, we traveled almost 8,600 miles while passing through 14 states and one Canadian province on the way from Miami to Vancouver Island and back. We visited ten national parks (six of them Canadian) and ten state or provincial parks (six of them in the U.S). Those statistics were typical for those summer expeditions. Nancy has driven scouts from Miami to Alaska four different summers. Her longest scout trip, to the arctic ocean, lasted 58 days.

Badlands National Park became our 38th National Park when established in 1978, after 39 years as a national monument. There are now 62 national parks, and counting. Badlands National Park protects almost a quarter-million acres of sharply eroded bluffs and pinnacles. It also contains the United States' largest undisturbed mixed-grass prairie, not to mention some beautiful views.
