The view from the webcam outside Painted Canyon Visitor Center looks north into the park. Buck Hill, in the center of the image, is the second-highest point in the South Unit. The hill is just under 2.5 miles from the camera. On a clear day, the Badlands stretch on endlessly into the horizon.
This webcam is part of a National Park Service air quality website that has live air quality from Theodore Roosevelt National Park, as well as other national parks.
