Friends, I have often heard people describe North Dakota as barren and containing no trees.  Well that may be true of some parts of the state, but this image shows the badlands with plenty of trees.  They are evergreens, cedars and junipers, and keep the green all winter.  The northern slopes are usually covered in green, while the south-facing slopes are often bare.  In the autumn, the fall colors are apparent in the gullies and along the Little Missouri River.  More badlands tree images tomorrow, til Tomorrow MJ
