212 VIEW FROM THE WALL
Badlands National Park, South Dakota. Rising abruptly from the prairie hills of southwestern South Dakota, "The Wall" is the defining topographical feature of Badlands National Park. Once a lush marshy plain, this spectacular park was form by millions of years of being ravaged by wind and water. Filled with rocky spired, steep canyons, low slung buttes, and jagged ridges, Badlands National Park covers 244,000 acres and contains one of the worlds richest deposits of fossils from the Oligocene epoch.
