South Dakota can feel superior to North Dakota for one reason, they’ve got Mr. Rushmore: a really cool hunk of rock with four presidents’ heads protruding from it. All twenty of its citizens live right across from the monument, obviously. What a nice thing to wake up to every morning: staring right into Lincoln’s stony eyes, knowing he’s judging you big time.
South Dakota: Badlands are good for you.
The Badlands are way more interesting than your local mall. This is true desolation where you can walk for miles and see no sign of civilization. It is a picturesque place: a wonderland of bizarre, colorful spires and pinnacles as well as deep gorges.
