View looking to the east at Bear Butte. It is a rather interesting landmark on the South Dakota landscape, and a sacred place for the Lakota Indians.  It stands alone in the middle of the plains, kind of reminding me of Devil's Tower in Wyoming (the mountain in Close Encounters of the Third Kind for those of you not familiar), looking somewhat alien in its surroundings.
