The sky just seems bigger in South Dakota, and this drive through the state’s western edge gives travelers plenty of opportunity to admire its spacious, often eerie beauty. This is a land where massive bison appear by the road as if from nowhere, the jagged Badlands loom like monuments to a lost civilization, and locals are on a first-name basis with long-dead gunslingers.
