"Badlands National Park, Evening" by Catherine Sherman.
As evening falls, shadows accentuate the sharp edges of the pinnacles and buttes of Badlands National Park in South Dakota.
The park protects 242,756 acres (379.3 sq mi; 982.4 km2) of sharply eroded buttes and pinnacles, along with the largest undisturbed mixed grass prairie in the United States. The National Park Service manages the park, with the South Unit being co-managed with the Oglala Lakota tribe.
There are dramatic multi-colored layered rock formations, steep canyons and tall spires. Bison, bighorn sheep and prairie dogs live in the grasslands.
