The Badlands were amazing, given access to bottled water and air-conditioning. I don’t suppose I’d have appreciated them much as a pioneer, on foot and in a hot, sweaty, long dress.
Or, for that matter, as a serious hiker today – the sort who goes places you have to register at, so they know where you were last when they (and you) don’t know where you are now.
But it’s great to stand on the edges and admire the view.
Sharing is good . . .
