Have you ever gone to one of those places that looks like it hasn’t changed since the early 70’s? And is wasn’t that great back then either? Well, Badlands Petrified Gardens in Kadoka, South Dakota is one of those places. From the handwritten signs to the uninspiring organization of items throughout the yard, this place just didn’t do it for us. Yes there is stuff to be learned here but it is such a snooze-fest that even our rock-hound, Peg, was bored. When the best part about the place is your glowing sneakers in the fluorescent mineral display you know you have issues. I would say skip this place.
