KS Roadtrip: Badlands
Come with us. Let us show you… There is more to Kansas than you might think. Let’s explore the wild places, let’s go to the Badlands.
First you will see Castle Rock, the four towers that rise from the ground, tall and proud, surrounded by the prairie. Feel the greatness, look up and realize this has been here for millions of years.
Follow the dirt road, towards the South, you will find the Castle Rock Badlands; acres of chalk formations to explore, to photograph, to get lost in.
It is thought that these chalk deposits were once under water, and were deposited during the Cretaceous Period, which was the Age of Dinosaurs! Just think about it… They are gigantic! Little by little, this place tells its story, as it reveals shells and marine fossils.
It is a big box of secrets… Waiting for you, in the middle of the plains.
