The prairie is stunning. Hundreds of buffalo with their calves, a bighorn sheep with her little one, prairie dogs and their little babies as well. I saw a ground owl and a coyote too. All these animals I saw midday. It was storming for a while but when it passed, it was nothing but golden light and beautiful clouds. There was even a rainbow. Drive slow through the badlands and take your time. Enjoy and revel in every overlook, and make sure to get out of the car and experience a few trails. This, just like every National Park, is a treasure that belongs to America and is an excellent place for landscape and wildlife photography. There are a lot of kitschy, touristy things to do in the Black Hills area. I would take Badlands over any of these places ANY day.
