The Badlands might not be bad but they are certainly hot in the mid 80’s with no shade for miles. This place has a strange beauty to its ugliness. This park is really more about the geological structures which are pretty neat. Some good overlooks. Got clouded out for sunset one night but I am sure it looks amazing here. Camping at Sage Creek is a nice remote place. Actually caught a meteor shower on Saturday night which was cool. So peaceful that night. The Castle Trail is no joke so be prepared if you are going in the summer time with high heat. Bring lots of water with you!
