Snowing in the Badlands. Again.

Snowing in the Badlands. Again.

Originally uploaded by miss_distance

Snow and more snow. Snow in the forecast through Thursday. Last night we received an inch of rain — that’s a lot for a region that only receives 20″ in a WET year. This area has been in a drought for the past several years, so I am sure the moisture is welcome by ranchers and wildlife, but the terrain doesn’t absorb rain very well…. the snow covering this small erosional feature is stained yellow and red-brown with sediments that are sloughing off. The Badlands are eroding even as I watch.
