Views From Badlands: the National Park That Defied a President

Updated: 25 January 2017
On Tuesday, after newly elected U.S. President Donald Trump placed a gag order on the Environmental Protection Agency regarding social media posts, the official Badlands National Park twitter account posted three tweets about climate change. While the tweets have since been deleted, the act was perceived as rebellion against the gag order and the new administration’s attempts to silence climate change facts. The Badlands National Park is located in southwestern South Dakota and was established as a National Monument in 1939. According to its website to “fully experience” the park, you’ll need at least two days – but for just a taste of what you might expect, check out the images below.
