    lazy typist…

  3. Doris says:

    Wow, what a great site. It almost doesn’t look real.

  4. Jeff says:

    wonder where this shot is taken from…the road side…off road up a hil……Nice shot. stunning right.

  5. Karen Too says:

    Matt hasn’t been behind the Moon, he’s on the Moon.

    Great shot.

  6. Dennis from So Cal says:

    It’s hard to think of them as “Badlands” when they look so beautiful.

    • Chaser1 says:

      try getting stuck in them with an animal bite

      • That was a thought of mine earlier to when I saw this. Lots of places for snakes, etc. to hide. Look out Matt!

      • Glenda says:

        if you see dark clouds – run, drive, get the H### out there you could could be there quite awhile don’t ya think Chaser1 – when it rains it gets slimy – good ole gumbo knobs

        • Chaser1 says:

          Yeah it CAN get messy but I really doubt matt will be climbing those with his cart. Would be obviously dangerous and near impossible in places. However, they are fun to climb just for sh*** and giggles so you never know.

      • Marshall in RVA says:

        I hope you haven’t experienced that personally.

  7. Caroline says:

    Wow. :O)

  8. Don in Tennessee says:

    Awesome shot again. Desert even have their own beauty!

    If we do not get some rain in East Tennessee soon, my yard will look like this!

    • Barb C. says:

      Don, I just mowed mine, and it is beginning to look like this in pictures. There was rain to the north of me and some rain to the south and west, but only about .1tenth of an inch here.

    • I’m surprised you didn’t get any rain yesterday Don. Or maybe the line of rain didn’t reach as far down as you are? Up here we had a nice day of rain to help out. Yards up here have been starting to brown out from this heat wave. Hope you guys get some relief soon down there.

    • Candice in Alabama says:

      I have a small jungle growing in my front yard – I must mow it soon, in spite of the heat/humidity.

  9. katzien in austin says:

    Great photo. I wonder where that road goes??

    • Glenda says:

      Katzien – those aren’t roads – that where the water runs when it rains

      • katzien in austin says:

        Ah,I see. It’s a dry creek right now. Amazing scenery though. Remember how green and lush Wisconsin was? And now this. I just love our journey together! ;-)

  10. Candice in Alabama says:

    I’m a loving this one – already – going to go Flickr Zoom it!

  11. Mindy Curtis says:

    Weclome to The West!

  12. Pat in CA says:

    The Internet has a lot of drivel, but is the Internet at its best. A community of encouragers traveling with Matt, enjoying the beauty along the way and getting to know each other. We’ll hate to see it come to an end. So maybe you can come south to northern California.

    • Jeff says:

      ditto Pat. Nice post.

    • Don in Tennessee says:

      Pat in CA

      Do you live close to Pasadena. I have a long time friend of 42 years from college who lives in Pasadena!

      Thank you for your comments.

      With the issues our country has politically, this internet site sure has UNITED STATES(ED) alot of people from various parts of our great land.

      Chime in and give us your thoughts. I learn new things everyday on this site!

      Welcome to the Matt Green Hobo Nation!

  13. Barb V in Michigan says:

    More earth tones! Beautiful in it’s own earth-toney way.

  14. Tesla says:

    Wow, it’s just so hard to process in my little Alabama mind that there are such beautiful things like this. Awesome picture.

  15. MN Roxanne says:

    love this desert scene… beautiful!

  16. Angelica says:

    whoa!! this is so beautiful it almost looks unreal. How did you end up in the desert anyway…are there just like random patches of desert scattered in between the mountains and cattle farms? Montana is a frightening state.

    • mojinator says:

      i think matt went through that byway that’s why we’re seeing the desert. i am loving the surrounding here btw.

  17. deb says:

    Are you walking thru that??!!

  18. Janine says:

    Now THIS looks like badlands to me.

  19. Chaser1 says:

    The main part of the badlands would have been through Medora, ND to Glendive, MT *(mekoshika park). But yeah, those look like the badlands and I know the area around Jordan is very rough terrain with a lot of fossil dig sites all the way up to Fort Peck.

  20. ok this is what I’m used to the badlands looking like!
