Vacation Photos Day 1: Badlands
I am slowly choosing and uploading pictures from my vacation.
This is a picture from day one, when I took the Badlands Loop on the way to Wall.

Wall SD sounds alot like "South of the Border" on the NC/SC line. Do you remember that?
I think that SOTB is an attempt to duplicate Wall's success. There is an actual town at Wall as opposed to the actual tourist trap, and no matter what it's grown into, Wall Drug at its beginning had a good and fine purpose. (and it predates SOTB by almost 20 years)
And while it feels kitschy (and there are certainly a lot of signs a la SOTB), it doesn't and didn't feel as tourist trappy.
I did take some pictures of Wall Drug itself--that's coming in a future picture post.
