Jewel Cave

Jewel Cave is perhaps one of the most difficult shooting locations I’ve ever been to. It is DARK down there, even with the lights the National Park Service has installed.

  1. THe badlands are BEAUTIFUL! One of these days I’d love to have a road trip out there.

  2. Nice, I’m sure you can get better pictures of Garden of the Gds than me and Aaron did. Also, there’s a Mexican place in town that gave me food poisoning, Don’t eat there… it’s next to the Rodeway Inn.

  3. Those pictures are great. I really like the one of Mt. Rushmore at night….

    So Kevin is Mr. Smooth huh…. uh huh right

  4. The first image should be captioned (To Keep It PG-13) “Bad Boys in Badlands”.

    Cool pictures and I was just seeing a documentary on “America’s National Parks” and they showed a good deal about Badlands NP :)
