I love this area. Beautiful photo. Now, why did I drive all the way to Utah a few weeks ago, with all this red rock so close to home??
There are a lot of colorful badlands in Wyoming. This one is directly above Dubois,up a well marked side road.The colorful country goes on, merging with the high Absarokas in the distance.
I used to do a lot of caving in the Pryors, the Bighorns, and the Little Mountain area near Lovell. I love northern Wyoming. All that Red Rock, with the Beartooth, Washakie and Yellowstone right next door!
You ask, "Why badlands?"
Badlands is a general name for areas of eroded clay cliffs, mounds, spires, etc., that occur in arid and semi-arid climates of the American West. Most of them are not so colorful as the badlands near Dubois, Wyoming, Many are an uninteresting gray or tan. I guess that are "bad" in the sense that they can't be cultivated.
Thanks dear Ralph!But at my opinion they are splendid!
