My 2012 South Dakota trip

(full size is highly recommended)

Badlands National Park series

Imagine viewing a land where sharply eroded buttes, pinnacles and spires are blended with the largest, protected mixed grass prairie in the United States. This extraordinary region is the Badlands, located in southwestern South Dakota, just east of Rapid City. The best of these savagely beautiful badlands comprise the 244,000 acres of Badlands National Park, a unique region so ruthlessly ravaged by wind and water that has become a scenic wonderland.

The badlands region sprawls over 10,000 square miles of vast prairies and grasslands, amidst the chiseled spired landscape and rugged pinnacles. Explore this picturesque region of South Dakota that few see. For some of the most amazing sunsets anywhere in the U.S. or to view the millions of stars at night, this is one of the most beautiful places to visit.
