Badlands National Park, South Dakota

Badlands National Park, South Dakota

This is my friend running on the narrow strip of land in Badlands National Park in South Dakota. When he went on this ‘trail’ (this path was not marked as a trail), I waited for him to return back so that i can click a human soul walking in this wilderness. Due to certain adrenaline rush, i saw him instead running on the ‘trail’. When he reached back to the parking lot, i showed him this photo and he was very much excited, and surprised as well. Probably, he had not expected that i would click an action shot of him doing adventure along the edges of these cliffs.

Walking off the marked trail can often reward you with better sights and experiences in these national parks. And wildlife too! But running on these narrow strips of cliffs requires an adventurous spirit. Most certainly, walking on the edge of such cliff is not for them with fear of heights. However, from a photography perspective, I am glad that my friend walked off the trail and i was able to click a human form set against the majestic wilderness of Badlands. So, thank you my friend!

This photo is a contribution for this week’s challenge: Narrow.

    • Fantastic Helen. You must visit again to relive your memories. I would visit again for the love of better photos. It’s a very beautiful place. In fact I have never seen such geological formations in my life. It’s a very unique thing.

      Thanks for appreciating my shot. Have a good weekend 🙂
