The Badlands NP
The Badlands National Park in southwest South Dakota exhibits an impressively stark but beautiful landscape. While I am not sure if the mountains in the park actually qualify as mountains in the SP-sense of the word, this pic does qualify as alpenglow. My son and I hung out at the Panorama Point pullout for about an hour for the sun to pop through the thick western clouds, which it finally did at about 8:20pm. The next 25 or so minutes made me think I was in Utah. btw - this is the closet I can get to anything resembling a western mountain here in Minnesota. June 2006. Fuji Velvia 100.
