Badlands National Park
Today we visited the Badlands National Park in South Dakota, taking the Badlands Loop Road (SD-240) west through a portion of the park.
We entered the park late in the day. The Visitors Center was closed, but the park was beautiful in the late afternoon. Before leaving the park we enjoyed sunset and the rising of a nearly full moon.
The following photo was taken at the Big Badlands Overlook near where we entered the park:

The two photos below, showing sunset and the rising of a nearly full moon, were taken at Homestead Overlook:
We exited the park about 30 minutes after sunset:
