On my journey to Alaska I've stopped at The Badlands to see if they're really bad. Turns out, they are. Bad as in "way cool".
My general impression of The Badlands is "Wow, other than this paved road winding through the middle of this setting, this doesn't seem like any part of Earth I've ever been to before". You could film Capricorn One here and nobody would even guess you were on Earth. :)
