We stopped off at Badlands National Park after leaving Montana and heading into South Dakota. Yeah. We were the only visitors there and the park was actually closed (no employees, but you could still drive in). It was ten degrees with a wind chill of something significant, but we got out of the car for a little stretch and before I could get my gloves on the mister was off! He soon disappeared, but I stayed close to the car. Still, we had the whole place to ourselves and the restrooms were unlocked. Did not see a single rattlesnake!
