best time to visit the Badlands is anytime! the park is wonderful and there are many scenic overlooks to pull into for wonderful picture taking. each new curve in the road will bring oohs and aahs as you take in the beauty of the colored rock formations. also be sure to get out and climb among the rocks yourself! when you leave don't forget to stop at Wall Drug for souvenir shopping, free ice water and to get your photo on a huge Jackalope!
this is just one of many in the new series of national park kits I will be adding to my shop over the next few months - just time for summer vacation! if you and your family are planning a once in a lifetime trip to the Badlands this kit is perfect for decorating your scrapbook, journal or travelers notebook in true vintage style. use the images to decorate your journal while you soak up the South Dakota sunshine and make sure to wear your climbing shoes!
fun facts: I've been to the badlands three times, the last time there was a archaeology dig happening! visiting the famous Wall Drug Store is one of my favorite parts of the trip and many of the vintage postcards in kit, I purchased there. to pass the time on the eight hour drive from my hometown in Iowa, we would count and even write down the words on all the billboards advertising Wall Drug. they used to be over 200, sadly now most of them are no longer there.
special information about this kit: there is a picture of the Wall Drug Dinosaur included that didn't make it into the photos. also there is one postcard that the back is damaged from being attached in a book. some images have handling wear, and a few soil which adds to the vintage experience. package size is 10 x 8 inches approx.
