The Last of the Badlands
Looking down from the rim walk, and out across teh lower prarie.The trails seen leading downward in the center of the photo are actually part of the walk we are on. They lead around the edge of the "Wall" and then off into the lower prarie.
Looking further down the trail. Thel ower prarie is looking quirte a bit greener than I am used to seeing it. 
A look up at the top of the "Wall". Over the edge is the upper prarie (not to mention, Wall Drugs).
These three photos are a series of "Verticals", taken of some of the park formations. The nature of the Badlands, makes it well suited to such compositions. It is very much a vertical place. As can be seen in the lower photo, the cam grounds skirt along the edge of one of the cliffs.
