The Badlands go on for quite awhile. You'll definitely want to click on the first pic. I stitched it together (which you will easily see) using Canon PhotoStitch. I'm sure there is a tutorial on blending sky which I will never read unless I stumble upon it.The entire place seems to distort what a person knows about spacial relationships and distance.
...and you can see forever!
This is almost the same shot but look what a slight difference in angle does. No wonder we saw so many photographers there.
Part 2 next....
