Leaving Chicago meant that we weren't going to see another big city for quite some time, and we were getting back in touch with nature with visits to some of the most breathtaking national parks in the U.S.A.
As we entered the Badlands National Park we were greeted with a field of adorable prairie dogs (Allen Allen Allen!). Unfortunately I didn't have my zoom lens on my camera so I didn't get any good close up shots :'( However as we drove a bit further we came across these views and it pretty much made everything okay again.
We continued through the park animal spotting and being in awe of the landscape. After several photo stops and selfie opportunities we left the park to our next destination of Keystone.
