Three years ago, we drove into the Badlands with our pop-up, to camp in the NP camp. To our dismay, the wind was blowing a gale and the temperature was somewhere between 116 F and 120F. It was like stepping into a blast furnace. Our trailer had no air conditioning and the campground was devoid of shade. Discretion being the better part of valor, we high-tailed it to Wall and an air conditioned motel.
The next morning was calm and cool. We had a beautiful drive through the badlands, stopping for photos and some short hikes. What a difference a day makes.
