USA/ND: Theodore Roosevelt NP – North Unit

Theodore Roosevelt National Park in central North Dakota is one of the least visited national parks in the continental USA, and it’s a shame. Roosevelt spent a lot of time in North Dakota, first hunting bison and then eventually falling in love with the landscape of badlands and emptiness of the prairie. The land he bought and owned here eventually became a preserve and then a national park. This national park is truly amazing A rugged, desolate, and colorful with eroded badlands and cliffs and vistas. Some places look like Mars with sandstone hoodoos and towers, others looks like endless grasslands full of flowers, and others resemble Yellowstone with free-roaming bison and deer. There is also a herd of big horn cattle that used to be bred here on old ranches hundreds of years ago.
