Campground View II: Badlands National Park, September 2003 We arrived late in the afternoon at Badlands National Park. After setting up our campsite I spent some time photographing the landscape from near our campsite. The main feature of Badlands National Park, known as “The Wall”, is a series of sharply eroded buttes, pinnacles, and spires which bisects the park. The prairie to the north is also higher in elevation than that which lies to the south and east.
