Badlands National Park

Badlands National Park is an open hike park which means that you are free to hike and camp off-trail as long as you stick to the rules. What? This was my first trail free backpacking trip and I was solo. It was magical. I spent two nights in the backcountry and learned a ton. Can’t wait to get back out there for a 4 day 3 night trip. Lessons learned – bring climbing gloves and extra band-aids!
