South to North

south hillsFriends, this image above is the red in the South Dakota Badlands and the image below is the red color in the North Dakota Badlands.  In SD the sediment layers are the pink hue and in ND the red color is a deeper hue and due to scoria outcroppings.  Just one of the differences between south and north. til Tomorrow MJ

    I had Forgotten the coloring in the SD Badlands but not the ND except I always thought it (scoria) was more orange than red. Anyway, both look postcard perfect!
