The Badlands of South Dakota is a magnificent place that changes dramatically with the setting sun. As the sun goes down and its rays become filtered by the atmosphere; it does a color- changing act that would make a chameleon jealous. The yellows, reds and oranges of the soil and clouds become accentuated and the eyes are greeted with a relaxing pallet of warm pastels. Then the stars take over and do their own tricks as the night sky darkens.
