Spring in the Badlands

Spring in the Badlands  Well, it’s only 22 days until Spring.  Some folks can’t wait.  Still, if you want to see the Badlands in spring green, you’ll need to wait until the last 2 weeks of May or the first 2 weeks of June.  It’s not green in the Badlands for long.  Generally, I prefer the first week of June.  Usually, the grass is green and the wild flowers are blooming.  In a nice long weekend, you can explore much of Badlands NP.  Don’t forget to drive over to Wind Cave NP just south of Mount Rushmore and Custer State Park.  Wind Cave NP may be small, but it makes up for it in remoteness.  I’ve been there at least 6 to 8 times and have seen two vehicles and three people; one of them was a park ranger.  Again, the best times to visit is spring or fall to avoid the summer crowds.  My portfolio has several other Badlands images.
