The Badlands of Theodore Roosevelt National Park
The North Dakota Badlands cover the southwestern third of the state and are part of a larger range of badlands which stretch south to White Butte and into South Dakota’s Badlands National Park. These photos were taken in the South Unit of Theodore Roosevelt National Park, near Medora, North Dakota.
There is a certain romance in the landscape of badlands, and North Dakota’s are no exception. You can’t help but be reminded of the all the moments in cinema history where the badlands were the backdrop, from westerns to post-apocalyptic thrillers.
Many of these photos are featured in our second book, Ghosts of North Dakota, Volume 2.
