Vacation Learning: Summer road trip 2017 #5

Here is a picture of the visitor center. The kids had a Junior Ranger booklet and went around the exhibits answering questions. 

Our last hike was at the Cliff Shelf Nature Trail. This trail gives you an opportunity to see the vegetation around the badlands. We saw lots of small birds and wildflowers. 

At the end of the day we drove to the Sage Creek Campground.  The treacherous gravel road had me scared (I would not recommend it for those with RVs), but the opportunity to see wildlife was priceless. 

We stopped at a prairie dog town to take pictures, and to look at bison roaming near the road. 

Here is a picture of the view from our RV in the morning.
  Note: the campground is free.  

Here you can see the washboard-looking gravel road.  I drove at about 3-7 mph for over one hour. Was it worth it? You bet.  Will I do it again? No thank you!
