Pinterest • The world’s catalogue of ideas | Ballast in the Badlands - Sully Springs, ND | Ticking down my last ten minutes of sun, empty ballest hoppers roll through the iconic Sully Springs on a beautiful September afternoon. It took me a couple of hours to find the "Steep Butte" as I have heard it called by others. Atop this rock cut, an outstanding view of the badlands can be had. Certainly worth the long trek to get here.
