As Sarah mentioned, Joe Jansen was the impetus behind our plans to Badlands National Park in South Dakota. Joe is the father of my roommate in Conshohocken, Ian, and has done some mighty traveling of his own, with the help of a killer RV and a terrific travel companion named Liz. And one day, Joe sat down with me and shared more than a thousand of the most unbelievable photos of this great country, from NYC to California and so much in between. The Badlands stood out like a bright, shining thumb, and while we were there, Sarah and I set out to rival his photographic experience. See below for our results.
That's Badlands National Park, South Dakota. Make a mental note.
