Badlands National Park of South Dakota

 Did You Know?

Badlands of South Dakota
Badlands National Park is located in the White River Badlands and was called mako sica (mako, land and sica, bad) by the Sioux Indians.  The term badlands generally refers to an area that is difficult to travel through primarily because of the rugged terrain and lack of water.  The fascination landscape within the park erodes at a rate of about 1 inch per year, providing an ever-changing landscape.

The back of this postcard has a special postmark from Badlands National Park, Interior.

After having seen various postcards of this place, I had been very curious about it. Then, I had the opportunity to visit there a year or so ago. It far surpassed my expectations. The terrain is visually stunning, like nothing I had ever seen before. The roads through the park go on for miles.
