Carved by water, the eroded Badlands landscape dwarfs the surrounding prairie. The banded pinnacles and buttes are, at first, a bit foreboding. Native Americans called the area “mako sika”, meaning “land bad.” There is a fascinating beauty in the ever-changing shapes and colors of the land.
Birthplace of North America vertebrate paleontology and home to one of the largest remaining mixed-grass prairie ecosystems, there is much to discover in the Badlands.
