The Good, The Badlands, and The Beautiful
South Dakota is a land of expanses—from the bitter buttes of the Badlands, the rugged heights of Devil’s Tower, to the windswept grasslands surrounding the memorial at Little Big Horn. More likely than not, however, what you’ll be alerted to first will be the notorious tourist trap, Wall Drug. One region of the state is striving for dark sky designation, making it a destination of star gazing and astral photography. And, for the history buffs, never forget the wicked town of Deadwood, nestled in the Black Hills.
