Explore The Badlands

"$10,000?! I’d take that money and run … to the Badlands! This rugged stretch of land in western North Dakota inspired Teddy Roosevelt to help set up America’s national park system after his visit here in 1883. A good chunk of change would go toward a high-speed telephoto lens to capture the Great Plains wildlife here … elk, bighorn sheep, bison and more. Plus, can’t forget a tripod: The night’s skies come alive with great displays of northern lights." -- Lisa, Interactive Producer
