More About South Dakota
South Dakota is located in the Midwestern region of the United States. More than 90 percent of South Dakota's land area was classified as farmland in the mid-1990s. The Spirit Mound near Vermillion served as a vantage point for Lewis and Clark as they viewed the Prairie Plains. The Badlands of South Dakota, a region of barren ravines and cliffs, was created by volcanic action as well as by wind and water erosion. The largest buffalo herd in the U.S. lives at the Standing Butte Ranch near Pierre. A gigantic sculpture of Crazy Horse, the famous Sioux chief, is being carved in the Black Hills. The project, begun in 1947, remains uncompleted. The famous Black Hills Passion Play is held annually in a natural amphitheater near Spearfish. Evan's Plunge, the world's largest natural indoor warm-water pool, is located in Hot Springs.
