I was born in South Dakota abut raised in Texas. My folks moved back to South Dakota to retire, and I get to go up to see them occasionally and explore the Dakotas. It as an awesome area, those High Plains. People, prairies, rivers, skies, random oddities, and places like this – Badlands National Park.
