After seeing all the roadside billboards advertising the Badlands Petrified Gardens, I couldn't miss it, could I?  Pretty standard tourist trap stuff, but worth viewing all the same.  It's got a huge selection of petrified wood from the area, plus hundreds of fossils of all kinds.

Just west of this attraction, there was a nice scenic overlook where I got some nice photos of the countryside plus a glimpse of the actual Badlands geography.
