Watching the sun set over the badlands can be a perfect end to a day of exploring Badlands National
Park. When the conditions are right, seeing the sky and the land formations change colors as the sun
moves lower and lower is truly memorable. Just make sure to choose a westward facing spot for sunset
gazing. (Viewpoints that come highly recommended for capturing the sunset are Bigfoot Pass, Conata
Basin Overlook, Norbeck Pass and Pinnacles Overlook.)

Do you prefer sunrise or sunset?
The Pinnacles Overlook at Badlands National Park is perfect for sunset views - as long as weather
conditions cooperate. The overlook has plentiful parking, a large viewing platform and an expansive
backcountry that both sunset lovers and photographers appreciate. Pinnacles is also in a great location
for anyone heading toward Wall, SD as it's just one mile from the parking area to the nearest park exit.
We are so happy that we had two chances to see the sunset over Badlands National Park as our first
wasn't so good!
