So Long to This Cold, Cold, Part of the World

Can you guess where Pip and Domo are? I know...it looks a lot like they're on Mars, but I assure you, they're still on the planet Earth.

The blue sky is reassuring.


But it does look rather desolate and cold.

If you look carefully, you can find some tasty morsels, but there's not much here. Here's another hint: they're in North America.

Nope, not Utah...

Pipkin and Domo are visiting a land formation known as badlands - dry terrain of soft rock and soil that has been exposed by erosion. This is the Cheltenham Badlands, located along the Niagara Escarpment and the Bruce Trail, in southern Ontario, Canada.


The Cheltenham Badlands is an example of what poor farming habits can do to otherwise arable land. In the background of the photo above, you can see where the top of the hill of this former farmland is experiencing some secondary growth, but it's unlikely that the badlands will experience any regrowth.

Today, it is an other-worldly playground for the imaginative! Domo is channeling his inner Mark Watney. HELLO EARTH! I'M GONNA SCIENCE THE $#!T OUTTA THIS PLACE!
