Mount Rushmore - the Black Hills are last mounds of earth before hitting the vast plains that make up this part of North America.
Most people look at the great plains of North America as a place to zoom through with only rest stops! I used to think the same way until I started spending some more time in the region at such places as Badlands National Park and Roosevelt National Park in the Dakotas. These represent some of the last remaining remnants of a once vast grassland that covered at least a quarter of North America.
Please take a look at our North America Image Galleries!
