Badlands Sunset, Stars and Silhouettes Tour
You'll be taken to special locations where animals congregate during the setting sun. As you enjoy the wildlife of the Badlands, we'll set up with folding chairs, drinks and snacks at a perfect location to watch the sunset. The "Blue Hour" begins after sunset and continues for an hour, highlighting the wild formations with the bright blue and orange sky.
Next, we'll take you to the night viewing area in the park at a location only My XO Adventures knows. We provide you with blankets, comfortable mats, and pillows to see as much of the sky as possible. Laying on the cozy 2 inch mats, we'll see planets, shooting stars, and the Milky Way Galaxy.
Our guide will take night photos and share them with you at the end of the tour.
