  • Viewing the yellow purple mounds reminded me of the song America the Beautiful, and the line for purple mountain ⛰ majesties. Great overlook to stop at and great place to take photos.  more »
  • I know you didn’t think you could see so many different colored rock formations but here we are. Pastel yellows and pinks. You can hike by them too. Don’t miss these when you’re in the Badlands.  more »

  • This is a beautiful location. But you need to go deep and camp to truly enjoy the nature. But it's not as beautiful as Grand canyon.
  • Beautiful. Will make a great photo and must see when you drive through Badlands.
