Milk River Badlands
 
This desolate, beautiful place was about a mile from my home for one special
year. Several times I found perfect shiny sharks' teeth lying on the ground.
They looked new, but dated back to a time when a vast inland sea covered
the region. Later, a river ran through here, then the ice age's massive
glaciers nudged that big river a hundred miles to the south. The Milk
River now meanders through the original bed of the Missouri River.
