This place is beautiful!! Definitely out of the way from I70, but it really was worth it! The scenery is beautiful. There are small caves, and rock formations to explore. Great photos.

Just be careful driving through. The road is NOT well maintained. And it took us quite a while to get off the road without getting stuck.

This is a short drive south of I-70 and is worth the drive to break up your trip through Kansas. It is not a destination, but has interest. The badlands are unusual for Kansas.
