The Badlands from Above
Mar 26, 2015
John Flaig shared these photos taken from a weather balloon last summer. The balloon launched just outside Badlands National Park on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation and reached an altitude exceeding 100,000 feet. Its payload floated back down to Earth under a parachute and landed in a corn field just off Routh 73 north of Philip. Flaig is one of a handful of pioneers exploring the use of high altitude weather balloons for aerial photography. He currently resides in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
