Looking down on some more badlands

July 5th, 2010


  1. Denise in San Antonio, Texas says:

    I love the wild purple echinechea(sp) flowers. This is a beautiful shot.

  2. kristin says:

    i love the natural telephone pole in the pic too! ;)

  3. Barb C. says:

    Take out the telephone pole and it’s another beautiful picture.

  4. Jim in AR via MN says:

    Cone flowers too (are you on the edge of a flower bed?)…still, it is a beautiful sight…I still wonder how the Indians and early pioneers knew where they were and where they wanted to go…I suppose spend enough time looking at your surroundings…every vista is like fingerprints/snowflakes…no two alike…still it must have been difficult…

  5. katzien in austin says:

    Oh, purple coneflowers….they’re so happy, aren’t they? I love the depth and texture of this shot. It feel like we’re looking at 10 miles or so of vista. Gorgeous!

  6. Karen Too says:

    I’ll say it again: Great eye, Matt, and great depth of field on that phone camera of yours.

    Love how the shot starts with the flowers in the foreground, and then goes off for as far the eye can see.

  7. Don in Tennessee says:

    In 1998 I spend a week whitewater rafting 282 miles in the Grand Canyon (Glen Canyon Dam to Lake Meade).

    Every time we came around another bend the beauty was more spectatular!!!

    Every time Matt gets to new territory the beauty is more spectacular!!! BIG SKY COUNTRY INDEED!

  8. Katie says:

    Hi Matt,
    You are one great photographer. I hope a book comes out of this. You are a very lucky person to be doing this Walk Across America.

  9. Nugget says:

    Welcome Great Pumpkin

  10. Candice in Alabama says:

    Very Pretty Badlands!

  11. Janine says:

    More proof that the Badlands really aren’t so bad. Beautiful shot.

  12. Jeff says:

    There bad, there bad….there bad.

  13. Julie says:

    Love the wild flowers in the foreground 8)

  14. Sharon P says:

    Beautiful shot! Hope you have good coverage…will miss the updates if you can’t send them.

  15. Max says:

    Looking at the Verizon Wireless coverage map, you should be ok as long as you stay close to I-94…and that’s broadband coverage. Voice/Text looks even better. We’ve got bigger coverage gaps in west-central Texas.

  16. Laurenis says:

    These are soom good-land shots! I know it’s oh-so-wrong, but these recent pics remind me of Tele-tubbies. I knwo, I know *shakes head*

  17. Dennis in So Cal says:

    Another reminder of how beautiful America is.
