The badlands have a way of making a person feel small within its vastness and ancient history. You think back to prehistoric times when dinosaurs, saber-toothed cats and miniature camels and horses roamed here. The buttes themselves feel timeless.
The landscape changes suddenly from an “ocean of prairie” to its sharp buttes. It changes constantly, every year loosing an inch as more sediment is washed away by the rains.
Timeless but ever changing.
