Badlands National Park is a stunningly beautiful area. Once you experience a sunrise, sunset, a sunny day or even a passing storm, you will fall in love with this park.
Mount Rushmore is a unbelievable accomplishment. An idea turned into reality. It’s hard to imagine someone said let’s carve four president’s heads, 60′ tall each into this granite mountain.
Stunning views from the Stone Fire Lookout Tower at the top of Black Elk Peak / Harney Peak. It’s also sacred ground to Native Americans and a place of reflection.
Great hike that initially descends into the gulch over slick boulders. Very scenic trail with lots of mossy rocks, trees, water crossings and some small waterfalls. Sunday Gulch Trail is lots of fun.
Cathedral Spires & Little Devils Tower are two great hikes in South Dakota with open fields, rock scrambling and dramatic mountain views.
Best hike in Badlands National Park is Notch Trail ~ short and not difficult but still challenging with great views of the White River Valley, Badlands and a fun log ladder.
Driving I-90 heading to the Badlands and out of nowhere we see a huge bull head wearing a blue tarp as a mask! We are about to experience the art of Porter Sculpture Park!
