恶地国家公园

44年前的今天,南达科他州一个崎岖荒凉的地区被指定为国家公园,以此来保护在这片土地上发现的众多化石。早在11000年前,这里就是美洲原住民的狩猎场。事实上,它现在的名字“恶地(Badlands)”就源自拉科塔语。这里占地接近380平方英里,其被严重侵蚀的岩层使之成为美国最独特的景观之一。

这些岩层还在不断被侵蚀。国家公园管理局表示,恶地国家公园的岩层每年会被侵蚀大约1英寸深,速度非常之快。据科学家们估计,在接下来的50万年里,这些岩层将会被完全侵蚀掉。要来参观的话,请抓紧时间哟。

Badlands National Park, USA

Forty-four years ago, a rugged, inhospitable area of South Dakota was designated a national park to protect the many fossils found on the land. The area had a 11,000-year previous history as hunting grounds for Native Americans. In fact, the name we know it by today, Badlands, comes from the Lakota phrase “mako sica”, which literally translates to “bad lands”. Covering 982 square kilometres, its harshly eroded rock formations make it one of the most distinct landscapes in the United States.

And it's still forming! The National Park Service says the Badlands erode about 2.5 centimetres every year, which is fast for erosion. Scientists estimate that within the next half million years, the Badlands will have eroded away completely. You might want to start planning your visit soon.
