Notes: The Badlands is a 242,756 acre (98,240 ha) national park in southwestern South Dakota.  In addition to the sandstone buttes, pinnacles and spires, it contains the largest undisturbed mixed grass prairie in the U.S.  Part of the park is also a wilderness area, which was the site of the reintroduction of the black-footed ferret, the most endangered land mammal in North America. The park's highest point is Red Shirt Table, which unfortunately has nothing to do with Star Trek.  I have been through the park several times, and each time it was very, VERY hot!  Ugh!!
