We’ve been to the Badlands on several of these trips. It’s one of the quintessential national parks in the western United States. It’s a must stop if you are cruising the I-90.
We stopped here in 2013, 2015, and we even stopped here in 2004 before we even got started with the biofuel fun. Eons ago, back when I was a tiny lad, I stopped here with my family on my first westward road trip in 1993. It was places like this that inspired me to be a traveler.
In 2013, we pulled over here on the Badlands Scenic Drive, because my 2-year-old got car sick. We just ate at the Badlands diner at the entrance, and then took the curvy and windy road amongst the hills. I guess it was too much for the little girl, and she blew chunks. Just by coincidence, I was in the back of the van with her playing a game, and I had the “fortune” of being able to catch the vomit in my hand and throw it out the window. Not my idea of a fun day, but at least we didn’t to wash puke out of the carpet.
It rained later that day, so most of the chunks got washed off on the road. Memorable times….
