#MyBadlands Adventure

When I went into the Valley of the Castles, I recognized the Badlands as being a beautiful model. As I got closer to her, I realized she wasn't wearing any make-up. As I moved even closer, I fell in love with her. And that's when I discovered I was in the womb of Mother Earth.

Cafes, car rallies, tickle trunks, museums, provincial parks, golf courses, haunted hotels, train rides, ball parks, ancient medicine wheels, buffalo stones, teepee circles, clam chowder served in Diefenbaker's CPR dining car, magical urns, an art therapy incubator, and an unbelievable outpouring of love from the people in the 'Land of the Hoo-Doos'.

Read the stories and see photos of my journey with the Badlands Team on Facebook and Adventurer Dax Justin.
