Somewhere In Time is a weekly travel photo from around the world. Enjoy!

Badlands National Park

The minute we entered Badlands National Park I was in love. From the roaming buffalos, the perfect blue sky & the puffy white clouds to the sandy colored plateaus, swaying prairie grasses and the strong, warm breeze it was like walking into another world. And it was a world that I really felt at home in.

Sometimes when you travel you bump into places that feel so natural and easy – almost as if you have lived there before in another time, in another life. Badlands was like that for me. It just felt right. I was happy. I felt the kind of at ease feeling you have when you recognize there is something larger than yourself. All the little crap you deal with on a daily basis falls away and for a few sweet moments you have a hold on what really matters in life. You can imagine yourself as a better person.

I would like to spend a couple months exploring South Dakota, meeting people, taking photos & running through the breeze with Randy and Chachy. We only spent a few hours in Badlands but sometimes I daydream about jumping in the car and driving back, reminding me I am in desperate need of simpler times.

    Gorgeous shot 🙂 My in laws live in an RV and they have spent the last couple summers working at a campground in the badlands. They love it there. Many, many pictures of buffalo!

      Thanks for commenting Faith. Sounds like your in laws are pretty lucky people! I would love to camp and spend more time there. There are so many buffalo too! I love them – they are such beautiful animals – one of my favorite. @Faith,

    I remember driving across South Dakota as a kid and not being able to comprehend the change in climates and terrain… It was such an unusually awesome place.
