039 BADLANDS TWILIGHT
Buffalo Gap National Grasslands, South Dakota. In an almost surreal scene on the South Dakota prairie, distant badlands formations painted in purple twilight are reflected in a shallow wetland pool, surrounded by the lush greens of an exceptionally wet summer. The Badlands and their unique, mystical beauty are like no other place on the continent. Once considered a wasteland, much of the region now is recognized for its natural values.
