June 20th, 2012 - Badlands Hike and Milky Way photos

This was a down day in terms of severe weather.  We ended up with a few clouds and some rain showers in the early afternoon, on our way to the Badlands in South Dakota for some sight seeing.

My batteries were running low and I'd forgotten my charger, so I decided to hike the 4-miles through the Badlands on the trail we chose, and photograph it solely with my iPhone.  

Here's what I came away with:

After the hike we enjoyed a sunset and then decided to hang out and photograph the Milky Way over the crags of the Badlands.  What a spectacular sight, and an amazing night.
