This is a very interesting area and its beauty and mystery does not translate at all in the below photographs.
After driving for hours in South Dakota and seeing nothing but open country, you notice what looks like a very hilly or bumpy region in the distance. As you get closer it starts to come into focus.
As you actually drive through the park itself you are amazed at what you see. You wonder how such formations were created. It is truly an area like no other place on earth.
This region consists of thousands of acres. A road goes through a portion of it.
There are places where you look down into the open earth rather than up at large, sandy hills.
One thing you notice is the largeness of this region. You can see for many miles into the distance and you can appreciate why the Sioux Indians believed this land was and is sacred.
Mother Nature is truly a wonderful artist and this is some of her most special work.
Thanks for stopping by.
