Off the beaten path in the Badlands

Sage Creek campground in the Badlands National Park. The dust is from traveling down 12 miles of dry, washboard road to get to here. Bounced a few cabinet doors off their hinges, but worth it. Those brown dots in the distance are the bison that surrounded us a couple of hours later as they moved through while grazing. Amazing place- one of our favorite ever.

We stayed in the Badlands for two nights last summer but we stayed in the other campground. We drove back to Sage Creek without the trailer to check it out and if we had more than two days we definitely would have stayed there.

I wasn't expecting much from the Badlands because we were kind of just passing through. They impressed the hell out of me with all the wildlife. Fantastic place.

April 2013 Photo Contest - Off the Beaten Path

Some of my favorite "Off the Beaten Path" spots are in Kansas. There is a charming somewhat remote park near Lebanon, Kansas that marks the Geographic Center of the lower 48 contiguoug states. This photo was take during a caravan to the Rocky Mountain Vintage Airstream Club Rally in 2005.



Caravanning can make those out-of-the-way points of interest even more interesting and enjoyable!

..... isn't "Off the Beaten Path" really all about the journey? .....

.... these are a tiny fraction of the record of our Alaskan Journey in 2011.

Thanks,


Jay

Here is a remote boondocking location in Colorado where we had an entire lake to ourselves over July 4th week 2012. Nice...
