Badlands National Parks:
58 National Parks Series
They call it The Wall. It extends for a hundred miles through the dry plains of South Dakota—a huge natural barrier ridging the landscape, sculptured into fantastic pinnacles and tortuous gullies by the forces of water. Those who pass through the upper prairie a few miles north might not even know it exists. Those who traverse the lower prairie to the south, however, can't miss it; it rises above them like a city skyline in ruins, petrified.
It's been compared to an enormous stage set—colorful, dramatic, and not quite real. Water, the main player on this stage, has been carving away at the cliffs for the past half million years or so, and it carves away an entire inch (three centimeters) or more in some places each year. But there have been other players, too. Beasts with names like titanothere and archaeotherium once roamed here; their fossilized bones can be found by the hundreds. And today the Badlands Wall serves as a backdrop for bison, pronghorn, and bighorn sheep, as well as the million human visitors who pass through the park every year.

The 93 Year Old Who Lives Alone in the Wilderness
93-year-old man called Jack English has been coming to California’s Ventana Wilderness for 82 years. Nearly four decades ago, when an old homestead parcel went up for auction, he bought it and built a small off grid cabin on the site. Many years later, shortly before she passed away, his wife told him he should live there full time. Now he does, living alone, off the grid, and making hand made beautiful violin bows. A wonderful short profile of man who’s found contentment in a place that doesn’t seem to change.
