Black Hills • Badlands National Park

September 2020 • Passed through here during a very pregnant pause: one month after the Sturgis rally and one month before a stampede for ICU beds. Thanks, patriots. The western half of South Dakota is one of the most beautiful landscapes I've seen in the U.S.—maybe even the most American, judging by Mount Rushmore. Not only did we steal this land, we also carved our faces on it so nobody misses the point. Political signage throughout the state leads me to believe there might be another face added soon.
