North Dakota – The Painted Canyon (A Must See for Photographers)

The Painted Canyon is actually a Rest Area/Scenic Overview that located on I-94 just east of Medora, ND. The canyon is part of the Theodore Roosevelt National Park. It is my impression that most visitors think of the site as more of a rest stop and spend 15-20 minutes looking around and taking a few photos of their loved ones with the canyon in the background. There is nothing wrong with  this, but these people are missing what is probably the easiest opportunity they will ever have to see some spectacular landscapes.  The Visitor’s Center walkway that runs along the rim of the canyon for a few hundred yards took me a few hours to walk while carefully examining the canyon for photo opportunities. There were a lot of them. If you are a photographer, visiting this “rest area” is a no brainer.
