Sheep Mountain Sunset
A soft sunset, filtered by smoke from Canadian wildfires, lights golden sandstone overlooking the Stronghold District of the park in this view from Sheep Mountain Table. This remote spot is rarely visited, both because it is distant from the main park and because the last two miles is a deeply-rutted 2-track requiring a high-clearance vehicle. Located entirely within the Pine Ridge reservation, this land is considered sacred by the Sioux Tribe.
