Too many visitors will deteriorate this place, along with possible fracking in the area. The reason I encourage this community to go is that I think we are not the destructive kind and it could be lost before too long.

I have been to Bisti Badlands and found it to be very interesting and very photogenic. The few hours before sundown are the best time.

The last time I visited I got two flat tires and only had one spare. It was a long story but I won't tell the details. The reason I got the two flats - both within about 5 seconds, is that I was lured into what I thought a very nice spot for a photo. I drove through a gate in a barbed wire fence, not realizing that there were two stubs of old steel fence posts sticking up. A sound I never want to hear again, two tires losing air quickly and becoming flat within about 5 seconds.

It won't take long. Just read some reports on photographing in Antelope Canyon these days.  Sounds like a trip to Disney World in June would be more pristine.  Glad I walked the canyon in 1968 (but without a camera...darn!)  These days I'm beginning to believe Pogo was right on.

I agree, Pogo was right!
