Western South Dakota has an amazing variety of spectacular landscapes ranging from the prairies grassland and rock formations of the Badlands, through to the mountains, canyons and forests of the Black Hills.

And on the man-made side of the equation, the 4 presidential faces carved into Mount Rushmore is one of the great monuments of the United States. These parts were once the very edge of the wild west. It was home of the Sioux people, whose ancestors thrived for thousands of generations with a deep physical and spiritual attachment to the environment.
