The Badlands - Sunbeams and Moonbeams

The Badlands are mysterious and inspiring by daylight and mystical by moonlight and starlight.  Now you can experience both in the same trip!  This journey starts at the The Museum of Geology at SDSM&T around midday and takes you through the Badlands the way most visitors see it - in broad daylight. 

We start with a scenic drive through the southern reaches past Cuny Table, Sheep Mountain Table and on the Sage Creek Rim Road.  Then it goes one better.  After dinner, (on your own in the town of Wall) we travel the fabled Badlands State Scenic Byway illuminated by the glory of the setting sun.

Then we retrace the Scenic Byway in the cool, moonlit splendor of the Full Moon or on the nights of the New Moon, the sky reveals a carpet of  stars not visible outside this darkened National Park.  The Badlands have never seemed so good!

I spent over 9 hours with John, traveling through the area, first in the daylight, and then back to see the sunset. It was an amazing experience. I fell in love with the area. John's expertise in geology and paleontology showed in how he was able to explain the formations and all that we were seeing. Not being even a novice in those fields, John was able to explain it me in 'laymen's' terms.

John was courteous, knowledgeable, and a pleasure to be with during the whole trip. I would recommend this company without any reservations. I have already told folks who were traveling in that direction to call them for an outstanding tour.
