So I’m here to tell you about another day on my American road trip. This day is particularly exciting for me because we visited the Badlands. I’ve visited them once before with my family, but it was nice to see them again! It amazes me that there are natural landscape formations such as these ones so close to us. Not only were they glorious to look at, they were also HUGE! The national park continued far longer than I thought it would have. I love how natural they look.So I just realized that the same day we visited Yellowstone. Yes, we drove. Yes, we are crazy. On top of that neither of us had slept well the night before so we were basically running on zero by the time we got to Yellowstone and had to drive through the foggy, snowy mountain at an elevation of 10,000+ ft. Let’s just say we were a bit stressed. After that debacle, we thought we were in the clear. However we were not, as there was another mountain between us and Old Faithful which was also about 2 hours away. Within the park! Along the way we were greeted by a few different types of wildlife including some bison! We finally made it to the beautiful geyser at about dusk, although we did need to speed past a few of the other attractions which was a shame.
If you ever get the chance to visit the national park I definitely would. There is so much to see inside and it is HUGE! Just plan ahead as we had not. Also, if you’re planning on visiting many National parks I’d recommend the America the Beautiful parks pass. IT was $80 for our car and if one person has it they can bring 3 others with in one car! It lasts one year from when you buy it. A good investment in my opinion.
See you for day 3!
