Badlands and Black Hills

I just returned from an excursion out to the Badlands and the Black Hills of South Dakota. October is a great time to go because there is almost no one around and the weather can be quintessential "Indian Summer"; though one person I ran into said last year at this time there was a foot of snow.... I saw a lot of Bison, singles and in huge herds. It is a thrill to be out hiking and come upon these wild beasts.
