POTD: Patriot’s Dream #20

Patriot’s Dream #20
Scenic, South Dakota
2011

I’ve been traveling the last two days, arriving today in Topeka, Kansas for my first art show of the season. I’ll be on the road a total of about twelve days this time out and will post photos from along the way.

Scenic, South Dakota is on the south border of Badlands National Park. Composed primarily of a string of business buildings obviously designed to cater to tourists, I don’t know if it was named Scenic and then became a tourist trap or was a tourist trap that they named Scenic in hopes of drawing more travelers into town. Either way, it didn’t work. Except for a few private homes and one repair type business, the town is all shuttered, abandoned, faded and dilapidated.
