When people say, “I need a vacation,” they’re usually referring to going somewhere hot and tropical over a thousand miles away. What’s interesting about that idea is that wherever you are from, your curiosity of traveling somewhere is never far from your thoughts.
Needless to say, there is probably another person that’s over a thousand miles away from you, that wants to see your homeland.
Many people say North Dakota is nothing but flat, boring land, but that is a false accusation. Just West of North Dakota lies beautiful lands, filled with colorful rolling hills and breathtaking rocks… a place that we here in North Dakota call the Badlands.
This photograph was taken at Theodore Roosevelt Park in the Bad Lands. It’s not just a park that you drive through to get to your final destination, but rather to see the beautiful landscapes and take in the sights.
So, before you think about spending thousands of dollars to travel somewhere, try to take a look at what is surrounding you. It may be a day’s worth of driving, but in the end, you get to know the state you call home.
