Fans of the history of the America West will love the cultural and scenic drama of the Black Hills of South Dakota. The name of the region refers to the gently rolling forested hills of the area, but this part of South Dakota is also home to Mount Rushmore and the beautiful Badlands with their many stark painted desert landscapes. The difficulty and danger for pioneer crossings are what gave the Badlands their name.
