Looking for a colorful National Park to visit this week? Badlands National Park 🏞️ is definitely where it's at!!! Located on the southwest side of South Dakota, you will not be disappointed!
So how do the Badlands get it's beautiful colors 🤔🤔🤔 Due to the land being so ruthlessly ravaged by wind and water for thousands and thousands of years, mother nature has artistically made this place a true piece of art 🎨. The Badlands are a wonderland of bizarre, colorful spires and pinnacles, massive buttes and deep gorges. Erosion of the Badlands creates & reveals sedimentary layers of different colors: purple and yellow (shale), tan and gray (sand and gravel), red and orange (iron oxides) and white (volcanic ash). Pretty cool! 😎😎😎
