These lands ain’t so bad

Two quotes from Theodore Roosevelt:

“This broken country extends back from the river for many miles and has been called always by Indian, French voyager and American trappers alike, the Bad Lands.”

“Nowhere, not even at sea, does a man feel more lonely than when riding over the far-reaching, seemingly never-ending plains; and after a man has lived a little while on or near them, their very vastness and loneliness and their melancholy monotony have a strong fascination for him.”

And one quote from me:

“Wake up early. Wander the curious formations before the heat of the day chases you inside. Watch the shadows wash over the landscape like the waves that once were here.

Be alone and savor it.”
