This triptych includes representations of the two units of Badlands National Park. The first painting (BADL 63274a) shows the view near the Ben Reifel Visitor Center in the North Unit of the park. This view is seen by the majority of the nearly 1 million annual visitors to the park. The other two paintings (BADL 63274b-c) are from the South Unit, located on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation. Visitation in the South Unit is significantly lower than that of the North Unit due to the lack of visitor facilities and the difficulty in accessing the majority of the unit. The remote areas shown in these paintings can only be accessed via two-track roads with a four-wheel-drive vehicle.
