Show hours are 4:00pm to 8:00pm Friday, 10:00am to 8:00pm Saturday, and noon to 4:00pm on Sunday. If you are in the area, stop by and say “Hi”.)

On the morning I left the Badlands, during my recent road trip, I had a wonderful sunrise appear:

Amazingly, there was not a single cloud in the sky at sunrise. As I drove to the park entrance, I had been doubtful about experiencing a colorful sunrise since there were no clouds. But I was pleasantly surprised!
