Greetings from South Dakota
|South Dakota is a state in the great plains of the U. S. It is also called the "Sunshine State". The eastern part is a rolling plain with very fertile soil. At the western end of the plain, the state is divided in half by the Missouri River. West of the river are the famous Big Badlands, a region of towering peaks and odd formations. Southwest of the Missouri, are the beautiful Black Hills, with well-known Mt. Rushmore National Memorial, shown here.
